Most people use spectrum as a color match, but due to the age, you will probably be better color matching yourself. Remember to sand the area around the patch first to get a better match.

Brian is correct about being careful on sanding the flake. Just don't get too aggressive with the sandpaper selection. Try a test area first and start at about 1500 grit. If that does not easily remove the oxidation, take it down to 1000 grit. There is a clear gelcoat on top of the flake and the important thing is that you don't sand through it into the flake. Can't wait to see the final results after it is all cleaned up bc that will be a nice looking boat.
