I painted a 16' aluminum skiff w anti-fouling paint .. black.

Much more expensive and time consuming than I thought it would be. Interlux has a good website that gives a rundown of 5coats of this and 2 coats of that. Interlux of course. I was the only one in an Alaskan town of 435 people that had AF paint on the bottom of an aluminum skiff. Three different coatings and 9 coats of paint and much sanding did the deed but it probably was a waste of time and money.
Read the website but I think there was a different approach for different hull materials.
