Deck Painting Help!

I am preparing to paint the deck of my 1974 Tanzer 22. I would like to use a 2 part polyurethane like Interlux Perfection, but I have read that 2 part paints should not be applied on top of anything other than 2 part paint.

I have 2 questions for any of you experienced deck painters out there.

1. How can I tell what type of deck paint (1 or 2 part) was origninally used on my boat?
2. Can I paint over the old paint without priming? (to save some money)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am new to the boat painting arena.

Thank you!
