Barrier coat can be ordered ready to apply or be just custom buit with some epoxy, coloring and mica, making hard to identify just by color. You could apply a chemical peeler in a portion until all paint is removed, so whatever remaining is not paint. Your pictures looks rather old cracked botton paint. Afterall, you should not be concerned as blistering is very rare on boats of such size. Looks like larger boats are more prone, due to difficulties at old times, to spread the hardener smoothly on larger areas ....
