I am installing a new watermaker
. I cut some ply panels
to mount the components on. My wife volunteered to paint
them for me ( a real team effort as are most of our boat projects). Unfortunately the paint
can instructions are in Greek and the first coat she applied on the bare uncoated plywood
was not the primer, as intended, but white gloss exterior oil
Should I sand this back to bare timber and start again? (this would be hand as I am anchored and my inverter
will not drive my power sander). Or is the unprimed paint OK?
The paint will only be in the engine
bay, but I am a perfectionist. Will the lack of primer affect the durability, finish or both?
Thanks for your help, painting is one area I never seem to get right.
