HI John, Lucky you living in paradise! Brightsides is the topside paint I usually recommend as it is the whitest and most durable of the brushable paints.

Bottom paint in Hawaii

    Most travel lifts can weigh what they pick. So while the boat is still in the water they do a weight as she is clearing the water. I would speak to the yard
