I've removed all the paint from the hull by sanding it down with a grinder. I coated the hull with a thin coat of poly resin to seal the fiberglass. I need to find out what I should use to smooth out the hull to get it ready to paint.

Here are my thoughts:
1. lightly sand down the hull.
2. coat the hull with a marine bondo.
3. sand down smooth with long board and sandpaper.
4. primer / paint Looking to use a 2 part epoxy paint for the outer hull

Is this how it's done?

What are your thoughts?

The paint I had on my boat I just sanded down and painted with this (bed liner paint) used in the marine industry. It is real thick and it pulled the nap off the roller and is stuck on the hull of my boat. Hopefully, I can sand it down and paint over it. It is called Durabak 18 smooth. I got a special paint roller for it but the nap came right off the roller now it looks like the bed liner you would put in the bottom of your bed for a spray on Berliner. Don’t use it. It costs way to much.
