I am about to prime my boat, is it alright to use hempel under water primer all over the boat?

We have used Hempel's Underwater primer on a Merlin Rocket sailing dinghy.

However, when applying the first of an oil based boat paint it started reacting with the primer if over rolled and lifted the top coat.

We found the answer was to do a thin first coat rolled quickly and as little as possible to get coverage.

Let that dry and you should then be OK with subsequent coats

Don’t see any reason why not apart perhaps from the cost.
