epoxy over paint ?

Posted by Roger on Nov 2, 2005

I built a West River 18 about 4 years ago and varnished the whole thing, it still looks great. I'm about to start building a Jimmy skiff and considering painting part of it. Does anyone know if you can paint first then epoxy over the paint? I was thinking that after applying the fiberglass cloth and filling the weave I could paint then put an additional coat of epoxy over it to protect the paint. I'm not too concerned about weight so I'm not worried about that. Just looking for some input. Anyone ever tried it?
