    Hull work advice?

    02 xL700 had this damage for a long time (before I bought it )and was too lazy to fix it, well finally bought some west system expoxy and hardner, cut away the damaged and dead stuff, made the v shape mixed the expoxy used glass matting at first to repair gaps or splits, then after sanding ect ect fill level (for the most part) with a few rounds of epoxy and filler additive 409, now I'm stuck. I have a few voids that are in the mix and mainly was wondering what to I appply after this primer and paint what kind of paint for SMC? or do I use a fairing mix then primer and paint or have to be gelcoat?

    I used the west systems with the fine texture until i got it to the consistency of bondo. it works just like bondo and after you get it finished you can use spot putty for the pin holes. then just prime and paint.

    A good paint to use would be Dupont Imron Polyurethane enamels.

    I used Sherwin Williams Genesis Polyurethane on my triple piper it is a single stage paint you don't even have to prime and it covers very nice and has excellent coverage.
