Will it go over existing paint or do I need to go down to gel coat?
Here's what Interlux says about using VC over existing antifouling paint:
Removal is best but if this is not possible, start sanding with 80 grade (grit)
paper and progressively sand with finer grades until the final sanding with 320 grade (grit). Remove sanding residue.

Say...you've owned an Irwin 28...I may need to pick your brain at some point. Your review was very helpful and actually helped ease some of my concerns about buying a lesser-known boat. Can't wait to get ours on the water...hopefully next summer!
Congrats! I'm sure she'll serve you well. And yes, definitely feel free to contact me if you want to chat about the I28.
