Any recommendations?

I haven't used paint in over 10 years since I went bright but I have been amazed by all the technologies out there.

The latest issue of Jamestown Distributors' paper catalog, aside from being its usual picturesque self, had awesome articles explaining all of the different paints, in terms even I could understand. Ablative, antifouling, copper, etc. were all explained.

You might see if you can find a copy.

 Ran outside the Gate weekend before last and threw a special pot with the GoPro to see if the plastic triggers work with Dungeness crab. Hopefully the you-tube link works: . Only soaked for 1-1/2 hrs in 40' of water and little females were most of the traps residents. Threw them all back btw. The other 5 traps in 110' produced 10 legal males but only one decent size. I let my friend keep them as I didn't want to mess with little crab. B & B

Top side paints always state above the waterline use. 
What about right at the waterline were the bottom paint ends or graphite/epoxy ends.

I want something that I can paint the outside hull from the waterline up the hull.  So it needs to be UV resistant and since it will be right at the waterline I would like a paint that is approved for below waterline use.  It should hold up better than a topside paint.

Any recommendations?

the euro transom.  it can add beam

And it can also add length. My side panels are 3 full-length plywood sheets scarphed into a single 23'-4" sheet. I planned to use 23' with 4 inches to spare. But when the forward section of side panel did not bend as severe as expected, I had to flatten the stem and use more side panel than expected.

As I fret over whether my side panels would be long enough, I saw Fithian's euro transom. I realized I could just build with what I had and if the side panels are short, they are short at the top of the transom. If needed, I could lop off the upper segment of the side panels at an angle and build a euro transom, which, BTW, looks really cool on Fith's boat.

In the end (pun intended) the side panels were long enough with no length to spare. The tip if the stem and the tip of the stern are the factory edges of the plywood. No lopping required. No euro transom this time but it is on my wish list.

Can't think of any better way to break in a fishing boat than blood and scales on the deck.  Way to go.
