Re: What type of primer/paint?
I found Interlux products (both Brightsides and Perfection) look great. However, you need really good conditions for at least the final coat. Needs to be between 60-80 degrees, out of direct sun, and very little, or no wind. With Interlux, you can roll and tip the final coat, and get good results.
There is an article somewhere that describes rolling only (to tipping) Awlgrip. I think the trick with that was getting the thinner just right.
Painting my boat has been tricky. It really has taken a bit of practice to get the paint to go on w/o errors.
