          Primed my wooden 17' Custom Fishing Boat.

          Probably would be a good primer if I had all summer to wait for it to dry.

            I have just finished painting the interior of a small craft, having done the exterior hull last year. Multi marine primer works great but you MUST follow the directions - even call Epifanes if you wish. They will give detailed instructions on how to prepare the surfaces prior to painting. I have had no trouble and so far it has provided an excellent one part primer for the top coats of yacht enamel. First coat was diluted with Epifanes thinner (10:1) I have put 3 coats on prior to topcoats, sanding between each. I applied using chinese bristle brush. Good product, great customer service.

            Dilute 5 to 10% with same brand of thinner. Spray using good technique and put down multiple thin coats. Let it cure before sanding between coats. It will give you a tough, superior base for the Monourethane paint. It is not forgiving, so keep a cool head and make any "repairs" when you sand. The tech help was very instructive. I used it on a rowing shell I was building.

            I have used this on my side guard rails as I was tired of trying to keep varnish on them. I striped off the old varnish ,put on two coats of Epifanes multipurpose primer, and covered that with one component Epifanes enamel. That was 3 years ago and it still looks as good as the day I put it on. There are no short cuts and one must watch the temp, wind and humidity

              The first time I tried this product, I brushed it on. After a week of letting it "dry", it was still soft and could be easily dented with a fingernail. I tried sandding it, and it loaded 80 grit sandpaper so badly, I had to scrape it off with a putty knife. I tried a second coat rolling it on as thinly as I could. Again, I waited a week to try to get it to dry... I was finally able to wet sand it using 220 grit sandpaper.
