If you are going to haul out to paint, wait til them to get the barnacle residue off. If you can use it safely, Mary Kate On-Off (which is a mix of three or four strong acids) will disolve the calcium in the barnacles. Gord is the expert here.

Shadow - I think at some point you should haul out and do it properly. You want to get all that old stuff off, you want to get a good look at your hull and you probably want to get all the thru hulls replaced.

You might even have some shaft work to do.

Save up your pennies, dive on the boat for now but get everything under water squared away with a good haul out where you get all the work done at once.
