    Great job, Andy. I love the way you sneak up on the color match.

    Hi Andy.
    Can you recommend a distributor that sells small batches of color gel coat to the DIY?

  • david says:

    Hi again.
    Strike my previous comment/question Andy. I forgot to check the BLOGROLL in the sidebar. Looks like Express Composites has everything the DIY needs.

    Thanks for a great performance in Part 2. Looks like I’ll be giving it a try soon, as I just finished 5 spot-repairs on my Lido 14 thanks to your ‘…Hole In My Boat’ vids. Everything went great and I even scored a new polisher/sander as an anniversary gift from my ‘better half’ (yes, she wants this boat FINISHED!).

    Hi Andy,
    My gelcoat is old and seems to be much whiter than the original gelcoat. How would you approach a color match in that case? I believe that the white gelcoat from a can will be one or two shades darker than the hull’s color.
    Let me know if that makes sense.
    Thank you.

      Guessing the existing gelcoat has faded. Best option at this point would be to buff the gelcoat on the hull to get down to a fresh surface that *hopefully* will be a little darker and help with the color matching 🙂 Good luck!
