I have an old boat I've been fixing up, and I'm about ready to paint the bottom. I have sanded the old paint down to the original primer, and done some epoxy/glass repairs. I'm about ready to prime, and am wondering the best primer to use over both bare epoxy and sanded paint/primer?

Also, will I be able to sand out imperfections, after I prime it, if I use a high-build epoxy primer with multiple coats, or do I need to do this before I prime?

I'm not trying to make it look brand new, just good enough to impress you guys.... ;D


Thanks

Thanks firecat, but one of the descriptions I read online about pre-kote is:

Compatibility/Substrates: Apply to clean, dry, properly prepared surfaces only. Do not apply over clear epoxy such as Epiglass Epoxy.

I have 3 large repairs on the bottom that have been done in exactly that. I feel like I need to be a chemist to paint my boat.
