There are two regions where I can guess you may have gone wrong. 1st is the sealing prior to painting. I like to soak the body in a polyurethane stain/sealer I have. I leave it in for a minute or so, and then pull it out and let it dry. Then, I sand, and repeat. Three coats or so and this baby's ready to go. Thats how I seal. Some use dissolvable pellets in water or acetone, and thats another option. The 2nd area could be with the clearcoat. I would just simply go with the tried and true Devcon 2 or Envirotex Epoxy clearcoat. They are great products, and if applied correctly, they will keep water and teeth out of your bait. Good luck jcb.

use a sealer first. then you must use compatible paints for good adherence. then a good clearcoat. read the threads. theres a world of good onfo here.
