Graphite mixed with epoxy on the boat bottom gives great abrasionn resistance; comes out black though. Or copper powder mixed with epoxy for antifoul and that classic gold/copper colored bottom.

If your up on blocks it's easy to just move a set of blocks and paint that area of the bottom.

Sounds like a great boat. Best of luck with the outcome. Hey ! No pictures. You should know you gotta post pictures.
