Hull Painting Progress

I'm making progress with painting the hull sides. These photos show the color selection. I'm not completely happy with the finish texture so I'll be wet-sanding the entire boat and applying another coat. Hopefully just one more coat (possibly two, if I sand through).

I used Interlux Profection, Lauderdale Blue. I'm was extremely happy with the way this paint acted on the first coat using Russell Brown's roller only method. I had absolutely lap-mark free finish, though I did have a fair amount of dust in it. I don't know why the second coat applied six hours, the minimum re-coat time, had extreme orange peeled in it.
