I finally got one coat of primer on last night. Seams like a huge milestone. I will do another coat later this morning then let those two coats set for three days and do a light sanding before the final coat. I went with the WR-LPU paint and Yatch Primer. I did not thin the primer at roll and I put it on with a fine synthetic brush and tip with another brush. It does dry fast so I am trying to learn as many lessons as I can while applying the primer so I will be somewhat (laughing) skilled by the time I get to the paint.
I did use the advice offered by several. I used a very wet mop and mopped the concrete floor all around and slightly under the boat about four time before I started to prime. I used a humidity gauge and got the humidity up to about 60%. I had plenty of time to tip before what I had applied dried and was always able to keep a good wet edge.
So far I like this product. No smell, easy to mix, very easy clean up. It even passed the wife approved test:)
I will post pics after the final coat. Thanks for all the advice regarding paints and application techniques.
