Fresh Water Bottom Paint in Salt Water

I recently purchased a power boat in the Great Lakes with fresh water bottom paint on it. I am taking it to Florida and will be keeping it in a lift.

Can I just leave the bottom paint on it? And if so, will it eventually wear off?

Re: Fresh Water Bottom Paint in Salt Water

If your keeping it out of the water you don't need any kind of paint.
It may begin to wear off, and when it does, it's usually not very attractive, you may decide to eventually re-paint.
My last boat was a power boat I kept on a rack, boat lifted out by forklift after use, I had no bottom paint, and almost all used that way don't.
