    I'm working on fixing some minor cosmetic gouges in the hull. I filled with Marine Tex and then going to spray over with gel coat. The Marine Tex is pure white. It makes the original look like a shade of yellowish gray. I'm going to add a little black and yellow pigment to see how the match works out. You can get the pigment just about anywhere that sells fibergalss repair products. I bought some from West Marine (premium pricing of course).

    Gelcoat colors vary and get bleached out by the sun. I usually mix it myself on the fly. I’ve found that mixing straight white with yellow oxide pigment is the easiest tint for Shamrock colors. You only need a tiny amount so go easy.
