Take it for what its worth but imho 320 is fine and almost a polished surface that paint may have problems sticking to.
Have seen boats peel 6 mths down the track, especially ones that have been built in less than ideal environments where contaminants can be burnished/polished into the primer surface prior to paint.
Not saying it will happen, but I have seen it.

This finish is on a composite cat that I built for myself and have built a few other boats as well.
Finest paper they ever saw was 180 grit.
Never saw any scratches or swirl marks.

P180..?? Gees I used that for cutting back the jotafair filler when I was fairing.

What paint were you using?

The tech data sheet of the paint Iím using says P320 minimum but recommended P400.

This afternoon the Aft cockpit was all rubbed back and washed out. Then I test fitted the roof supports then popped the toilet vanity and basin into position to see how it looks. Iíll take the toilet down on Monday to work out some measurements between the two then Iíll start the fit out then the flooring.

Thats funny because my x painter got arrested and the new painter said the same thing. The old painter was on 220 grit and the new painter sanded every thing in 80 grit and spraying primer today and tomorrow. He will sand that with 180 and paint. I have zero knowledge in paint or paint prep so this is more of an observation on my part.

Not trying to be an alarmist... I too have seen pealing paint due to surface prep not having ample tooth/bite for finish coats.

I'm no paint expert... But, I would take caution of grit paper between coats. The grit numbers mentioned in last couple posts will surely be kept in my mind for the next time I paint to reach a really pretty and lasting finish.

Happy Paint Daze! - Art

Today we prepped and sprayed the aft cockpit as well as a couple of internal doors. Next week Iíll do some wet and dry blocking and machine polishing to flatten out some peel but Iím 90% happy with the off the gun finish.
