SF brings up a good point... how fair is the bottom of your boat. If you do fair with a microballoon filler, coat it with a skim coat of unthickened epoxy, otherwise, the microballoons that are sanded can absorb water.
Since you're bringing it down to the bare hull, you might want to barrier coat it at this time while you're at it.
A good hard modified epoxy paint is probably your best bet, since you can sand it very smooth for racing...
However, IMHO, it won't matter too much, since you're on a full-displacement monohulll. If you really wanted speed, you'd be on a multihull....
bad dog.... bad, bad dog...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
