I have a 13 ft. whaler that was painted with brightside. It was a poor job. Do I just sand the boat with 260 grit and paint again ??

Frick,

You will want to sand the original paint job down as smooth as possible. If there are imperfections on the surface, they will show through the high gloss finish of the new coat of Brightside. Depending on how many imperfections are on the surface, i would start with 220 grit sand paper and finish between 320-400 grit.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Thanks,
Joe
