Worked in the Nascar industry for 6 years.
That is great & correct advice!

thanks! we used water that new PPG waterborne paint. its still requires a clear coat. i think the clear coat was solvent. the paint job is 3 years old now and it still looks like new. im no expert but really there no difference between a car and boat. its all about the prep work. and using a good brand like PPG. get it all sanded correctly and primed and blocked it again. base coat then clear. he laid the clear on heavy. like 3 coats i think. ill post some pictures.
