You can use the Wet Edge paint in white on the hull a quart should be enough for two thin coats.  Yes, use the same 2 part epoxy primer first.

The 2 part primer is a better choice if there is some spider cracks in the gel coat.  We don't have a color close to desert tan in Wet Edge, if you want to use that, I'd stick with just white.

If you have Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Priming System, that is good about the same as Totalboat Total Protect Epoxy Primer.  Both will be good.

If you are painting a white topcoat, I like to use a white primer, that way if you get a scratch in the top coat it's not that noticeable.
