...yes, use the boat paint AND the appropriate primer to go with it. I did two coats of primer then 2 coats of paint, let dry thouroughly between coats. Also IF you are using a roller, don't make the same mistake I first made when I painted mine. DON'T use anything but a F O A M roller sleeve. Anything else will show the effects, looking like you used a textured roller sleeve (unless that IS the effect you are looking for.

Welcome Colinn
Looks like a good project to start you off here. I have used marine paint on our Boler and got good results and comments. I Have primed and then painted two coats on the top half and have another finish coat to do on the bottom half if spring ever comes. Keep posting, we all like to be watchers of other people working.
