Default bottom paint question

Will a gallon iof bottom paint cover a '98 2800 scr? the paint is currently in decent shape. need to clean it up a bit and wanted to put a coat on.
I was recommended seahawk AF 33 and Micron Interlux.
thanks, BB

A gallon will do 1 coat. The Micron is an ablative paint, I don't know about the seahawk. What type of paint is currently on the boat? Centain types of paint can't be mixed, West Marine has some good info on their Website.

1997 2400 SCR
5.7 Vortec / Bravo 2

Yes, if in decent shape a gallon is good for one light coat. I always light sand to take off any loose paint and apply two coats at the water line...
