If the shop you took your boat to for the gel work knows their stuff your better off having them color match the gel anyway.

Why is that? Is there variance in gel coat batches??

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

The gel on the older boats fades enough that the colors are so far from matching, that it's better to have the gel guy just whip up his own mix.Plus you won't have to buy a larger quantity than you need. I'm no expert on this I just found out the hard way last year.
