Default Vinylester or epoxy

sorry for the same old question, I searched and found million replays and need Direction from the experts. 1999 ultimate warlock 28 sxt cat with procharger 502 750hp. I'm doing transom, bulkhead and floor to access. Do I need to use epoxy? Or can I use the vinylester, I lke the vinylester have used it before in the past, also would like to gelcoat when done? Also, does anyone know what ultimate warlock used for there hulls poly? Vinylester? I will b starting my project soon and will b asking you guys questions and posting pics along the way.
thank dan.

i still like VE for nearly everything i do unless its a structural bottom repair or race boat or it fills some specific need. Epoxy carries better physicals but its at a level that just isnt necessary in the real world here plus its plain a pain the the azz if you dont have a lot of experience with it. The boat was probably built with poly anyway, you could use either Ve or Epoxy i just dont see the advantage in Epoxy for a transom job. There are a few polys that are suitable but the elongation and overall properties are well worth the little bit of extra $$$ for VE.
