Where can I purchase a gelcoat that matches my 2002 26X?

What is "Macgregor white" exactly? Is there truly a specific tone of white for our boats?

I have had very good matching with the single step gelcoat, have painted and sprayed it. It is the same white that Macgregor used AFAICT.

Thanks for your feedback. Do you have a link to the product you purchased?

How old is your boat? Mine is a 98 26X and I suspect that the colour is slightly more yellow that it used to be, it is difficult to say.

Evercoat is the product I use. Try this reference:

My boat is a 96X but kept under tarp when not in the water, though the last 3 years my water time approaches 7 months both in San Diego and New Orleans. :)

Thanks Newell, I will check if I can find this product in Saskatchewan.

7 months sailing! That sounds like a dream... We had only 3 and a half months this year. :( Time to move in a warmer place...
