    Hello All,

    After filling and sanding, I primed with Precoat and sanded most of it off, applied my first coat of Kirby's and sanded 90% of it off to fill sanding marks, imperfections etc. I finished with 180 dry, but now I'm wondering if this is enough "tooth" for the first coat of paint that will remain on the hull. Should I re-sand with something coarser before the first coat?

    You should be fine. I have never had any problem with paint adhesion after using 180.

    Shouldn't be a problem, Mark. I finish with 220 dry.
