What Paint?

do you recommend? for re painting the hull on my 5.4? I've herd story of paint peeling off etc, will i need a primer? - I currently going through the vile tasking of sanding off the antifoul - got a couple of very minor chips and dings which I'll sorting -

any advice would be great, Im considering taking A frame + engine off and flipping her over

Would a small sponge roller make a nice job of of this? any tips would be great thanks

If you are going for the sponge roller, then yep this will give a ok finish. But give your self a helping hand and get the ones for varnish as they will not react with the thinners in the paint and start coming to bits half way into the job.

I have used International’s paint in the past, but can’t remember which one it was. It may have been Brightside?

I have used alexit 2 component polyurethane paint and it worked really well. I applied two coats of primer and then 4 coats of international orange. I used sponge rollers from the local hardware store, and they do fall apart after about 15 minutes, but I could get one coat on in about that time. I would definitely flip her over to do the job! Also, i found painting in direct sun gave more tiny bubbles on the surface which did not flow out that well, so I wet-sanded between coats.
