I am planning on re-gelcoating my '71 Outrage this summer. Does anyone know where I can find desert tan gelcoat same as original? and how hard is it to apply? Also I have some egg shelling in the gelcoat on the upper deck I need to deal with first. I have read in the forum on how to repair the spider web cracks but this is a little worse. Thanks for any help it's nice to have an information source for classic whalers. JC

I'm in the same "boat" so-to-say, minor spider cracks and oxidation is my problem, but I'm not gonna re-gelcoat. That's good when you first lay it up in production, but to re-paint, use a 2 part poly. (a lot tougher)
Listen to west systems interview in the radio forum, and good luck!

Spectrum Color Gelcoat - factory matched desert sand - do a search for their website, or look in West Marine's website or catalog.

Available in two-oz. patch paste kits, quarts, gallons, etc.

That would be "desert tan", not "desert sand"...
