  1. As Tamure said 5mm knap mohair rollers. I apply one coat horizontal, the other vertical, extra over leading edges. My boat is in a marina. I have been using TransOmarine 271, was happy with that and had about 500ml left at the end each time. Coverage I think is a combination of the rollers and the area to antifoul. My boat is a Mull 9.5.
  2. For my 9.5 mtr I too use hard antifoul and put it on with those tiny rollers unthinned. I get 2 full coats, 3 on leading edges and still have a little left over.
  3. My Northcote mooring was serviced 2 weeks ago. I had requested it at the beginning of June. It needed to be done by July. Auckland transport had sent me a notice late last year, a second and final notice in Feb this year. In August I received a notice of revocation of the mooring. I responded by email, received no response. The Harbourmaster now has a copy of the Mooring Inspection certificate. I use and recommend Stuart at Tidal Engineering.
  4. For the other little jobs shown you could try rust kill epoxy primer plus epoxy gloss enamel from your hardware store. They come in spray cans or for brushing.
