Looking for any info regarding the correct white gelcoat color. I need to do a little bit of patch work. And also what color navy blue is the boat and trailer painted? I know it's rust oleum

Thank you guys (:

I believe '85 was the first year that the hull accent color was gel-coated in (not painted on). 

As for the hull color, it may be best to get a gel-coat repair kit and 'tint-to-match' the white. I'd wager the color has 'changed' over 37 years...

What's everyone's favorite gel coat repair paste?

Wood is correct the 85’s are gel coat accent and vinyl graphics. 
I would have to check but I believe I still have a set of graphics in gray that I would sell.

Are you positive? The blue stripe around the boat seems painted.
I need decals but not grey, I need white with red accents
If anyone has a lead that would be killer

Wow! I thought it was paint. Good to know. How thick is it? Can I sand down imperfections?

It’s the same thickness as the rest of the gel on the hull, it can be wet sanded how much is dependent on the condition of the gel.
I had one of the guys on here make the set but he hasn’t been on in a long time and I have seen several attempts to contact him through old threads with no luck.

Sorry to bring this back up. But what's confusing me is I have a few small scratches in the blue and it looks white underneath. Hmm.

The blue is taped off in the mold and sprayed first.  The tape is then removed and the primary hull color is sprayed.  If you sand the blue long enough you will eventually get to the white.  Leave the imperfections and focus on sanding down to a fresh surface and then polish out.  If you want to repair imperfections then do that with a patch past kit or some gel.

Thank you Scott that is very helpful. Is it possible to upload photos from a phone on this site?

If it’s an Apple product iPad/iPhone you need to use third party like imgbb.com which is what I use.

Perfect. Hopefully this comes through. These are some examples of the imperfections I am referring to.
