Hello all - I am new to the board and did not find enough info in a existing thread, but refer me if my questions are answered.

I am soon to be a proud new owner of a J-80 and am considering what work to do upon haul out. I do not yet have the survey results but have all but decided that at a minimum I am going to have the TickTack inducers (included in the sale) installed and the bottom painted. The bottom is not faired and I hesitate to consider that now for cost/benefit reasons.

Does anyone on board have any suggestions for deciding on a paint, how many coats, how to ask them to apply it? Does anyone have any other tips for things I should consider while the boat is out?

FIP - the boat will be wet sailed in San Diego. Any help is appreciated.
