Hull Resin Material for Bottom Paint

Hello! I just purchased a 2022 Hurricane 185 Deck Boat (115 Yamaha), and plan to keep it in a wet slip in the upper Potomac, but understand that I will need to get bottom paint applied if I'm going to be leaving it in the water for an extended period of time.

I've been told that the bottom paint used is different depending on the hull resin material (Vinylester vs Polyester resin). e.g. Polyester resin in the hull requires a barrier coat before the bottom paint, vinylester resin does not require a barrier coat.

Does anyone know what resin type Hurricane uses in their deck boat construction?

Thanks in advance!!
