    Greetings!  We are in the  process of moving our 22 foot keelboat from North Carolina to its new home in Quantico.  We are wondering how much we should worry about bottom-painting her before we put her in.   The bottom was Teflon painted a few years ago and not sailed since, and that remains in very good condition. But we don’t know whether we need to paint over good Teflon with anti-fouling bottom paint?  just how much of a problem is marine life in the area?   Any thoughts on just how much we should be concerned with barnacles and the likes between DC and the Bay, which is where she will spend most of her time ? Thank you- appreciate any and all advice!
