I want to repaint my boat. Wooden Holman 26. Its currently dark blue topsides, white boot-stripe and red antifoul. Im going for the dull classic combo of green antifoul, white topsides and gold boot-stripe. I'm going to use international varnish (Compass) on the mahogany brightwork. I will burn off (or sand all the topside paint)
Ive been looking at the various undercoats and the like for International; they seem a bit complex. I was wondering if the other paint companies, eg Hemple or Epifranes were any simpler or if there was any one paint that was recommended. The boat is on a swinging mooring, gets sailed a bit, no racing though.
