Re: Yet another bottom paint question, now featuring picture

The OP is witnessing, first hand, the danger of apply one paint over another. They are often incompatible with each other. Doing it again, could be a real waste of money.

Is it not possible to have it stripped and done right, which is what you will have to do eventually?

For those that have introduced the idea of environmentally safe paint, it already exists with some positive reviews. Modestly more expensive, but people say it works. That could be very region specific, as paints often are.

It is at least possible that we are all forced to go there, so if you're starting from scratch, it should be a real consideration. You may avoid having to start from scratch again.
