I have applied 2 coats of 2-part epoxy primer to the dinghy I've just finished building and now I'm ready to apply the 2-part PU paint. Should I sand the epoxy primer before painting? the primer has a pretty slick surface, almost a semi-gloss finish. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the advice Downeast! I applied the epoxy with a roller, so it's pretty thick. I'll wash and wet sand as suggested. The top coat will be white. I suppose I'll have to do 2 coats (with a roller). Do I have to sand between PU coats as well? I'm not looking for perfection in the finish... it's a workboat (dinghy) after all.

I'm using a national automotive paint. It's what I could find here and it's soooo much cheaper than the marine stuff. I figure if it works on cars left out in the rain and sun, it'll work on my dinghy.

Thanks again for the tips Downeast!
