Recently I have asked for help but no responses. I have one general question before going to the next level as the engineer at Petit Paints asked me specifically which plastic composition it is as I am trying to get a mfg responses as to bottom painting. I am asking you to identify as to help all of you. I was asked if it was one of the following:
1. ABS
2. Polypropylene
3. Polyethylene
4. Polycarbonate
5. Polystyrene

I would appreciate some advice

After a brief Google search, I am going to venture a guess that it is none of the above. More likely Polyester to keep cost down.

Edit: I stand corrected. I was misled when it indicated fiberglass reinforced.

Let me take a stab at this..............the thread below indicated the outer skin hull material is Luran ACP which is BASF's styrene-acrylonitrile copolymer (SAN).
