    Hi Folks,

    There are a few nickel-sized chips around the hull that need some patching. 3rd picture below shows an attempt to use White which I've since sanded down appropriately. I paid $30+ bucks for the patch kit so I just accepted the mismatch and it is not too hateful.

    I've found 3 to 4 different flavors of White and would appreciate your thoughts on what color my boat might be. Ice White, Off White, White, or Bone Enamel? Also seeing some variations in those as well such as "ASH" or "HK LVOC" listed on Spectrum Color's site.

    Really appreciate any thoughts on the matter and thanks so much!

    I had to take my boat to a professional, Hunter Green Metal Flake.

    All I know is that it is a real vulnerable spot on the hull when docking maneuvers don't go well. Bumpers can't protect this kind of damage.

    IF you are a DIY person there are some good videos at Boatworkstoday.com He tells you how to mix and tint to color match the gel coat.
