Using two different deck paints

At the end of last season we purchased our 1st sailboat. It's a 19 footer approximately 1966 vintage fiberglass boat. The gent we purchased the boat from had planned to paint the deck and in preparation had purchased a quart of Rustoleum Top Side paint. I kind of turned up my nose at that.

A few weeks ago I purchased a quart of Interlux Brightside paint. Then one eveninIg since then I was talking to a friend of mine that reads a lot of yacht type magazines and he tells me the Rustoleum is a pretty good paint. In addition I am wondering if I purchased enough of the Interlux Brightside paint to do the deck.

Question: Does anyone know if priming the boat with Interlux primer, then coating with Rustoleum Top Side paint, then coating with Interlux Brightside paint will work together? I will be sanding between all coats.

Thank you.

Have a Great Day,

May or may not work, if I had to guess I'd say not. Brightside is a good paint but don't expect to get much life out of it on deck. The 2 part paints are twice as durable in that situation - like Interlux Perfection.
