Bottom paint compatibility w/ Comex

Hey all,

Just bought a boat in Mexico and shipped her up to Seattle. We've got her in a yard right now and want to put a coat of bottom paint before we splash her. Our surveryor suggested we find a paint that's "compatible" with the paint that's currently on the boat - Comex. Apparently that paint isn't available in the states due to its toxicity.

I have no idea how to go about finding a paint compatible with Comex. Anyone have any thoughts? Anyone else run into this issue?

Thanks!

Jason

BTW - I only have a receipt for the current bottom paint that says "Comex antivegetativo azul". So it's anti-vegetative and blue. No other indicator of type than Comex.
