    Found the j 24 I've been looking for but it has never been bottom painted. I will be mooring and need to know the best anti foul to use for speed and approximately what this should cost from my local boat guy. Is there a template that is used to judge the waterline on a clean hull?

    the "best" bottom paint really depends on the geographical area that the boat will be moored. We use VC-17 for freshwater inland/great lakes here in Ohio, but that's all that I can attest to.
