Bondo: Only if you're a u-boat commander as in the movie "Risky Business".
You're going to a lot of time and trouble to strip the boat down and "do it once do it right". Right?
So look at the MANUFACTURERS" INSTRUCTIONS on the product(s) you want to use. Starting with the barrier coat, see what they say is the best filler/primer, see what tey say are compatible products under and over it, see what they say the coverage rate is when it is applied at the correct thickness. Too thin is no good, too thick is no good.
Maybe you can save a buck by cheaping out on materials, but if you want the product to perform AS WARRANTEED, you stick to the whole list of compatible and correct products that the maker says will do the job.
Don't get pennywise on a job like this.
