Topside Paint Timing

Hey all sometime in the next year I plan on finishing my exterior painting. In doing the research I can't recall coming across info for how long one should wait after the last coat of topside paint before putting the boat back in the water.

For my project I've been using Pettit Easypoxy and I don't recall reading this info on the can or on their website.

What is considered proper or good?

Depends on temps & humidity. Two days is minimum. Use Japan Drier to achieve faster cure times with enamel. Paint in spring or fall, when temps are ideal. Type of reducer also matters.
