Foam brushes are surprisingly good for paint AND varnish. Be sure to get good ones though - the ones that look "foamy" - (lots of visible holes in the foam) are not nearly as good as the ones that have a more solid looking texture.

Re: bottom painting question

If you think you might have it the water for more than a week, say while on vacation than you might consider bottom paint. We have a small aluminum fishing boat and after just a week in Lake Michigan we get all kinds of stuff growing on it.
