    I am wanting to paint my Bronze strut and Skeg with epoxy primmer. Question can I paint the primmer on the Bronze or do I need a metal primer first. If so what metal primer is best to use.

    International Paints make a product called PA-10. It is an excellent metal primer for underwater use, and it can be painted over with epoxy if you so desire. Use the red one though, it is also available in grey, but the grey is not for full immersion use.
