    Rustoleum makes boat paint, one for above the waterline, and one for below ($12 & $35 per quart). I recently did the top-half of mine with it. Got it at the local Menards.

    he he he..forgot to put the link in the message. It originated in new zeland, but a boat is a boat so procedures materials will be the same. Other links you can follow for more information.

    since your going to paint the outside might aswell seal it do right theirs some stuff out their that seals the whole boat but its brown or mucky color
    I say do it seal it before you get it all done then have to do it again
