- Give your boat surface an adhesion basis -
Priming or applying an undercoat on your sailing or motor boat is carried out for various reasons:
For protecting the substrate, usually from water, metal can be protected from corrosion, wood from rotting or GRP from osmosis. The primer serves as a bonding agent and ensures a good adhesion between the substrate and subsequent coats.
Document the priming work you have carried out in your personal "paint logbook". Stored safely, it will make it easier for you when doing later repairs.
