Hunter New White Gel Coat Match

Hey Guys,

I'm trying to fix some cracks on the transom where the swim ladder is attached that are starting to let some water in and was hoping to find a good match for the gel coat. My 2007 H38 is Spectrum New White according to the pdf on the Marlow Hunter website. Unfortunately, that product is only available in gallon sizes and I just will never have a need for that (even though I do plan on fixing a good amount of crazing I have going on at many of my stanchions).

Does anyone know of another brand that would be a decent match? I've heard lots about white gel coat being easy to match and that if I compound, buff & wax that it will disappear. I'm particularly interested in Total Boat since I can have it delivered in about a day. Anyones thoughts or experiences are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Pat

The gel coat that I purchased from the store here was a perfect match when I fixed some damage at the boarding ladder. 06 H33 (not too much sun degradation) It was available in a small jar, a couple or few oz.

Do you have a picture of the jar or can by any chance?

The patch material will gel coat to dry in air but regular gel will need to have other ingredients added so a wax will raise to the top to form a barrier as gel coat alone will not cure in exposure to air
