Re: painting

anti fouling paint is only needed if you intend to be in the water for more than 2 weeks or so.

Re: painting

Easy... Ablative for saltwater (let the salty folks answer with the best product for you)... but only if it's to be in the water for more than a day at at time (long weekends same)

VC17m for freshwater, again if it's going to be in for more than a day or 2 at a time.

But just wax the gelcoat and sail if you are always gonna trailer/day sail.
