I am in need of some first hand experience help.
I have built a wooden drift boat, applied 6 ounce cloth, filled the weave with West System epoxy, added additional coats, allowed to cure, sanded, applied 4 coats of Interlux Epoxy Primkote, sanded, then had 5 coats of Interlux Brightside in Sapphire Blue sprayed professionally in a booth.  The print of the fiberglass shows through so badly that it looks as those the fiberglass was simply painted without the addition of epoxy and primer.  You can't feel the weave but it stands out like a sore thumb.  The paint shop is at it's wits end and Interlux Tech services is out of the shop throughout the week.  I know that someone out there has experienced this.  Any help, advice, fixes, etc. would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
