what primer should be used on bare fiberglass below the water line?
If you want to stay with the Aquagard products it would be the 181 Primer, or Interlux 2000E or Totalboat Total Protect.

Would you recommend this product for alluminum pontoons?
Used this on a new tritoon with a dewax, sand, followed by 2 coats primer, followed by 2 coats bottom paint. Boat in water all summer and held up very well. Labor intensive but happy with the results. Hardest part was getting good information on the whole procedure as Aquagard does not publish much.
I used it on wood and it was just fine, not sure about metal.JS
I've tried many paints on aluminum hulls and this one has definitely held up the best and provided a great base for the Alumigard anti-foul paint. It even grips to old paint if given some tooth. The water clean up and low VOC was just a bonus but welcome all the same.
