|needabiggerboat||Well, goofed that up - should have done the bottom paint first! Live and learn. Any suggestion on how to get a clean edge on the bottom of the bootstripe now? Have yet to paint the bottom.|

To address Tommays concern about paint bleeding under masking tape; we have found that vinyl electricians tape (the stuff that comes in a black roll) is far superior to the blue paper masking tape sold for that purpose.

Don't think the order is particularly important, but don't see how you can do both the blue and white simultaneously. You'll need to let one dry before you and tape the second. As for the paint, a decent oil-based enamel is OK. Better is a single part polyurethane like Pettit Easypoxy, and best would be a two part polyurethane like Awlgrip. I would go with the single part polyurethane.
I am assuming the current bootstripe is painted and needs renewal. On many boats (like mine) the bootstrip is colored gelcoat and just needs polishing and waxing each spring.

What kind of paint as two part while better will make it more complex
Big issue is the paint bleeding under the tape as well as taking it off at just the right time as it cant be to soon or to late
