I saw on another forum where a guy used Benjamin Moore M22 to paint his boat and claimed the results were pretty good, even rolling & Tipping. So, I contacted Benjamin Moore to ask what kind of primer they would recommend for a sailboat and they said they would advise me to paint without a primer! They claim this paint will adhere extremely well to old sanded paint or to sanded fiberglass, so a primer is not required. They did mention using one of their specific cleaners prior to painting. No surprise about painting right on top of the old paint, but even on the areas where I have sanded it all away? That is a bit surprising.
