Hi Ali,

I'm pretty sure you can have the color matched. Is your boat original gelcoat or has it been painted? I believe gelcoat is a bit harder to match. Eother way, even if you had the original color recipe, I'm sure it has faded over the years and that recipe wouldn't quite match. I believe that can match gelcoat now too but I'm not certain. There are plenty of videos on line showing gelcoat repair techniques. Jamestown distributors has some posted and some more amateur ones as well. I did some gelcoat repairs on my old O'day 22. They came out ok but, no where near perfect. I did get a lot of compliments on that boat's condition though. I may just be overly critical of my own work.


I have yet to do any paint repairs.

Hi,

I have a few scratches on my boat and I wanted to use touch up paint as it is unsightly right now. The boat is a maroon (dark red) C&C 30 1976. Does anyone know how I can find the original paint or the closest match?

Thank you,
Ali
