So I am refinishing a 19' ski boat and taped off my area and gave a thinned coat of brightside largo blue. reduced 10% because it was 30 degrees C outside. It flowed out fantastic after tipping with a brush. Great gloss etc. 

after one coat I had good coverage but a couple small areas you could see the white underneath. 

This is where I screwed up. 3 hours later it was dry to the touch I thought I would rush and put on a thin second coat and it be fine. Well it did not go on as smooth as I wanted. some areas the paint looked "thick" and it did not flow out as well. (about 7pm in evening)

The next morning (13-14 hours later about 9:30-10am) I decided to sand the area down so I could lay down a thin coat and finish my project. 

Sanding was temperamental and the paint was not dusting while sanding but rolling up and clogging the sand paper.  one area in the bow the blue gummed up and actually exposed the white underneath. Like the paint was not set and still needing to cure. 

Finally sanded the area enough and though I would wipe down the area with 202 as I used this before on my 2 part white paint and it worked well. (I now read that I was not suppose to use this but the 333 reducer) 

well is wrinkled the pain where I applied it and I had to scrape the paint of  via a spatula. 

Question is.. going to let the boat paint dry out all week. Do I sand the whole area down to the white base again and then reapply the brightside like scratch?
