Painting Deck and Cockpit....DIY or Pay?

My deck and cockpit are the last things that are needing attention. While not bad for an older boat, a fresh paint would certainly make it look very good. The topsides of the boat are in gear condition with the original gel coat still shining. The decks and cockpit are a little chalky and the original color was more of an eggshell or off white and that makes it look even more dingy especially if a newer boat is next to it with a bright white deck. So is this a DIY for a newbie that has done ZERO painting on a boat? Or should I find an experienced guy to do the decks? I am in Newport Beach..anyone know of anyone?
