OOps?!
Again, moisture movement is the cause?
This has NOTHING to do with your concept of material use?

There is way more information needed about your process to form an opinion.

Did you use CPES ? If so how and when did you apply it ? What were the humidity conditions then versus when you applied the barrier coat primer ?

Without information some people get FRUSTRATED .

Is it possible that this is an adhesion issue where the paint is not sticking to the material in the seams and presenting as a "movement" issue? Good photos might be helpful.

In the 'hull construction' forum, May 30, you asked about these opening seams.
I did my best to explain how the products work and postulated that maybe you weren't controlling humidity well in your shop, and you admitted a 3-month delay before coating with the barrier coat primer, and that's probably why your planks were moving?

You Replied: "My shop is the driveway and I am on the West coast so I am subject to the weather,would cleaning out the seams and using Sika 291 ?"

If your boat is still out in the weather, facing sun, wind, and rain changes on a daily basis, then I just don't know how you would stabilize it?
