flatcraft 11 feet hull paint

Going to need some help on a recent buy of mine, the antifouling is still on the hull and after I have sanded it down with a electric sander I want to paint it orange (the same as the deck). never done before any help at all will be much appreciated.
I'd like to know how many coats of paint I should use? Where to buy the paint cheaply? Any particular shades of orange to go for? How much paint I will need? And any other useful information will be very very helpful.

Hi mate thanks for that advise is it expensive? And what is the advantage of that over just a new lick of paint? Sorry not much experience on this kind of stuff

I wouldn't be the best a weighing in on the comparison as I've never used hull paint, but I recently gel coated mine and it worked out well. Gel coat is very hard and is impermeable to water. I don't know what sort of prices you would expect to pay out your way but it cost me about $150 for a gallon can of resin, the catalyst, the orange pigment and some rollers. It turned out great, super hard and came up looking nice after it cured and I waxed it. Do some reading online about gel coat application, I can answer any questions if you send a PM

That looks very much like a Force 4 that should have a 'flat bow', converted to a round nose with a clever set of tubes.
