Re-painting the hull

Before the season I'd like to repaint the hull in my Searider from orange to gray.

Could you please guys advice me what kind of paint should I use?
Should I use only gray Anti-fouling paint and put a few coats on existing one?

How would you do that?

Thanks a lot

Thanks a lot Juzm... It's what I need

Just a small question -> Anti-fouling paint - when and why I should/should not use it?

Are you leaving the boat in the water?

Do you mean it's already got antifoul on it? If so, all you need to do is rub it down a bit, mask around the top, and apply fresh antifoul with a foam roller. Dead easy.

Well I wouldn't. Take it out periodically and clean the hull off rather than anti foul.
