By the way Steve pick the color you want, regardless.  I wouldn't mind a bit sailing with a boat the same color as mine.

I used Kirby's orange "buoy" paint years ago on a ply/epoxy solo canoe I built for my (then) young nephew.  He wanted orange, so I got him orange (with cream interior...you guessed, the Creamsicle).  It was nice paint but it took forever to cure over the epoxy seal coat.  It's not as hard as the urethanes.  It does go on bare or primed wood like a dream.  I used Brightsides on my latest build and it's harder, I think.  Anyway, Interlux Schooner goes on over epoxy just fine.  I also had good luck with Epifanes, both the trad clear and the alkydurethane Rapidcoat.

Yup, that is what it was formulated for 100+ years ago.  I thin about 10% with turps when I use it as a primer for itself over bare wood.  As much as I like it I would use a polyurethane over epoxy,  if I didn't want to deal with a  2-part lpu.
