    Just acquired a pristine 1983 J24 - dry sailed its entire life and original gelcoat bottom. I am planning to moor for the summer. What is the best epoxy or other bottom paint to use to seal up the bottom?

    You'll want to get local recommendations. The best formula changes with the water the boat will be in. Correct bottom paint for a clear freshwater lake is different vs somewhat murky vs sea water....

    They alter the formula for the specific things you are trying to discourage from attaching to the hull.
