Don't repaint the hull. I'm assuming it doesn't have anti-foul? To refurbish, flip the hull over onto old tyres. Lightly sand using medium to fine grade 3M wet and dry paper and use a little detergent to lube and wash off residue as you work. Fill any imperfections with gelcoat filler, etc. Then mop the whole thing down with machine polisher and cutting compound such as Farcla or Mezerna taking care not to overheat the glass-fibre gel-coat in one section. You can use a wax to finish off.
Any pictures of this boat?
