Thats all great info and I appreciate it. My boat is very low profile and the water line is only about 6-8" below the transom sitting still so to make the job easier, I would probably paint the top with the same paint as the bottom. My boat don't have dock bumpers so there's really no stopping place to change paints anyways. So, from what I'm reading, it's better to use a non-epoxy paint on the bottom? Can you explain why this is? I would have thought that epoxy was the next best thing to gel coat but I don't know, I'm asking. You guys have more experience than I do with this so I'm willing to listen, just explain.
