    Well a post showing stuff like that can be helpful to a newbie. Not only to set yourself up to the harassment, but to help someone out. The most important aspect that I noticed was that you stopped once you noticed things weren't right. Just think if you kept laying finish down thinking it would cover over...now that would be a funny nasty mess.

    Many of us make mistakes, I try to follow rather than lead as my budget, or lack of one, lets me see how the others forge thru different issues. The old Hot boat forum was fantastic. I sure learned alot engine building,Info, and jet drive, v-drive etc. Your post is helpful.

    Bummer you should have seen that mess coming thru on the flash coat..... did you use fish eye eliminator in the paint and prepsol to degrease prior to paint?

    Dont feel bad, done a lot of stupid paint mistakes myself. Was painting a friends boat and somehow on the final washdown before we put in the Makeshift booth someone(not saying who) used Carwash soap instead of regular dawn type of soap to wash it. The Carwash soap had a wax additive of somesort in it, OPPS. Fish eyed all over the place even with a Wax and grease remover.

    What grit was the surface prepped to before you applied the sealer? what brand sealer did you use (Part # please?) also if you used a home compressor, you might want to look into a drier and/or water catch....sealer can be a bitch considering its used as a bridge between a blocked surface and the finish coating (Or base/clear coat application) only time I have personally seen this happen is when the surface was not cleaned or not prepped (Sanded) properly. just my .02
    hope everything has worked out for the better for you today...Happy Valentines day! Muah
