Questions on paint over brand new hull
Hi all, excuse my English.
Though I already have a SIB, I'm totally new with ribs.
These questions are probably solved in another thread, but the search hits too many posts.
I'm planning to purchase a brand new one. My boat will spend one month a year in the sea, so it's likely to get fouling (my sib does).
I've read that brand new hulls have a gelcoat paint and probably another external thin one made of parafine or wax or whatever.
Should I paint with primer paint the hull before using the new boat?
Do I have to remove the parafine coat? How?
Do I have to paint the whole hull (I mean, even the deck, or only the water exposed hull down the floats and transom)?
What about antifouling? Directly over the gelcoat, or is it always mandatory a primer coat? Two coats? How often?
Thanks for your help.
