This International Optimist is used by the Colington Yacht Club for their youth sailing program in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My parents currently run the program so I donate my time doing repair work to help repay the infinite debt I owe them for getting me this far in life (and I like helping out).
The boats are more than a dozen years old so they all need a completer going over to help them along. I sand down the hulls and put fiberglass tape set in epoxy on all the hull joints. After fairing the repairs, I put a one part polyurethane gloss paint on the outside and a flat grey latex on the inside with nonskid on the sole. Fittings are all surveyed, replaced if necessary and always secured with stainless steel fasteners.
