Hull Paint

My RIB is moored in a marina all summer and is already antifouled.

A previous owner painted the entire hull white antifoul up to the tubes which I didnít really like. The underwater antifoul is now black but canít decided what to do with the small area above the waterline at the bow.

Keep white antifoul (will it be very white)? Paint with a gloss white? Use boot top white?

If its antifoul above the waterline id try to remove it back to gelcoat, painting over it will only make it look worse imho. You'll find a few threads on the forum with various methods of removing antifoul
