Gelcoat color for 1987 Pearson 33-2

Howdy. So we have a few dings in the gel coat that I'd like to fix on our 1987 P33-2, but I can't for the life of me find what color the gel coat is. The owner's manual says white hull, but that doesn't tell me much.

If anyone's done any gel coat work on these or would know where to start? I also want to glass over an instrument (soon to be hole), and would also need the gel coat for that as well and would prefer not to have a huge gaping mismatch.

Any help is really appreciated and glad to be here :)

I dont think gel coats had identified, repeatable colors, unless you could get the original from the builder. So even if you hire a professional, he/she would go through a tinting process to create a mix that matches close enough. Close enough of course being an opinion. So you probably need to do the same, buy a kit and start mixing. As usual there is a font of info on Youtube
