    The primer is catalyzed vinyl ester, so it cures and will be block sanded to get a more level surface. Once the surface is flat and smooth, then gel coat will be applied as you mention above.

    • Have read sometimes they use a blue dye, rubbed onto the surface when sanding, helps find the low spots, don't know if they use it over the prime though..sand the blue off, shows the low spots…probably one step behind you. Someday…Boat looks Fast already...

          Yes, I’ve read that as well, but have never tried it.

          Similar idea... Flat black rustoleum guide coat. This will show just how bad I am at body work!

          • Cover the chair. Don't want that to get sprayed.

                • Once again, I am tired of sanding.

                  Most of the deck blocked out somewhat flat. A few spots still need attention. Haven’t gotten to the motor box yet.

                  The pictures where it’s wet give me a bit of hope it will be straight enough for a darker gel color...

                      • Almost hate to put the boat back into the water…I would take it to a car show a few times with your truck…maybe a summer of two.

                          Haha. Good stuff! Not my truck (though I am negotiating to get it back). That belongs to my high school age son. My grandpa bought it new. 77k ish original miles. We put it back together when my son was 14. 90% original. Someday it will live at the lake cabin where it belongs...
