I was thinking the same thing baboon. From that picture the gelcoat doesn't look all that bad. I'd be surprised if it couldn't be made to shine. OP might want to check out MaineSail's write ups on resuscitating gelcoat.

baboon Ablative bottom paint makes sense if you are going to store her in the water, but think twice about painting above the waterline. Gelcoat is pretty amazing stuff and can often be brought back to life with a polish and wax job. Topside painting is expensive, difficult to repair when (not IF) damaged, and will do nothing to improve the comfort or performance of your boat. If you must paint, wait until you have sailed a season first and have learned how your craft handles. You will be less likely to bounce of a dock and mess up hours of hard work painting the hull. One of the those "don't ask me how I know" statements.

looks like you already have an existing water line, just follow that. Unless you think you need to modify it for some reason.

Lots of Topsides Paint out there. Thats like asking what anchor I should carry. Your going to have to do some research. A talk with your local chandler will help. Awlgrip, Awlcraft, are a couple but they can be expensive and difficult to use for the DYI.

This link might help, it has some tips on DIY Topside Painting.

How high up do i want to go on the paint? I figured if i did the whole hull then im covered.

My point is she is real easy to sail. Keep the hatch boards separate if it is not too late. Trust me on this one. If you have the swing keel version check the pin and wire rope carefully before you launch her.

Too late on the drop boards ive found a place to stow the door while sailing so that wont be a problem. As far as the weight I dont think that the tile will add that much weight to the boat to be a problem. Add it is even bulkhead evening ea side out and the counter top and table evening ea other out.

sailingdog Having separate dropboards rather than a single giant dropboard also makes it easier to swap one out to ventilate the boat when at anchor and such.
