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.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

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.
