I've decided I really need to paint the upper hull with something which will cover the epoxy with a solid color. Any advice on the paint types to look at?

I used a paving paint and seems to have worked pretty well.

A long time since any update, I have been busy though.

All the construction has been completed except I've decided to build in some flotation at the front. I will be adding a watertight bulkhead and access hatch under the foredeck.

The canoe is now being painted. I've laid down 4 coats of 'Oxford Blue', and four coats of 'Cream'. At the moment the last coat of cream is drying so the masking tape is still in place. I also gave the foredeck its first coat of clear varnish too.

Still to do -
Paint a metalic bronze pinstripe between the blue and cream.
Touch up the black (graphite epoxy) on the bow.
Another four coats of varnish to the foredeck and gunwales, seat and kneeling thwarte.
Finish the inner hull after fitting an airtight bulkhead in the bow for additional floatation.
