      Hello Richard

      I occasionally repair sailplanes and sailing dinghies and when I finally
      getting to the stage of respraying them I:

      i) give them an undercoat of two-pack zinc chromate primer - this is epoxy
      based that fills and sands (wet or dry) like a dream.
      ii) top coat is a two-pack polyurethane or two-pack polyacrathane - colour
      white.

      Of all the colours white is the hardest and longest lasting.

      Don't skip the undercoat - if you do - you'll treble your sanding time.

      Best sources would be a yacht chandler or maybe an auto body shop.

      cheers edi
