Re-Antifoul or 2 Pack Paint

My project continues.
Im going to repaint the bottom of my boat.
Given it will be on a trailer and the condition of the paint.
Should I re-antifoul with a product that can handle drying out? Any suggestions?
Or
Paint with a good quality 2 Pack Paint?

Also, should I do anything about the exposed fibreglassing?
Regards
Dave

Is the exposed fiberglass due to sanding the osmosis bubbles ?

I'd remove all the paint back to fiberglass, give it 2-3 coats of epoxy resin to fix any osmosis and seal the exposed fiberglass, use some epoxy bog to fill up any holes then 2-3 coats of 2 pack epoxy primer followed by 2-3 coats of 2 pack polyurethane paint. Then if necessary put on a boot stripe to hide the joints between the new and old paint. Unless you intend to keep it in the water more then 3-4 weeks at a time you won't need antifouling.

Hi, I'd fill and fair, epoxy primer, then a coat of copper coat antifouling. Boat cote do one. You'll only need one tin, it will likely outlast you.
