Planning to use interlux bright side on the boat in the upcoming weeks. Just finishing up prep etc... And was wondering if there were any primers that I could pick up at home depot etc that would save me some money over the interlux primer?
Oh and the bright side is a one part polyUrethane

I used Interlux Epoxy Primer and I recommend it with Brightsides or Perfection. It is easy to roll or brush on- two coats with sanding after each coat. Follow the instructions and it will look great when done. I noticed your location- make sure the temp. is warm enough and allow enough time for drying. Brightsides will look dull if you don't give proper drying time at the proper temperature (especially once the sun goes down).

Eastporter, good advise, low temps and pm dew will create an amine blush that will dull the top sheen and give a milky haze to the gloss. Recomend to use the specified primer, can not set a price on doing it twice.

Yeah I'm hoping to time painting with one of these real warm days that we have been having, and I'm going to be starting with the cabin so not to concerned with the gloss.
