1967 Nauset Hull Color

Postby Foamboat » Sun Sep 18, 2022 2:31 pm

Q1: what was the original color of the gel coat resin on the eterior of the hull of a 1967 16 NAUSET?

BACKSTORY
I have searched the forum for this but could not find it.

I am ready to paint Interlux Perfection on my hull.

There are several colors of white available but I don't know which is correct for a 1967 Whaler.

The choices are:
Mediterranean White
Artic White
Pearl White
Matterhorn White
Oyster White
Off White

The REFERENCE section article on the 16/17 HULL indicates the gel coat color used for the hull in 1967 was white. See

You can choose any white you like. The oyster white hue has been mentioned before in prior discussions. To find mentions of oyster white:

Go to the SEARCH PAGE at

Enter the search arguments: oyster white

The current forum is only a portion of the information available on CONTINUOUSWAVE.COM

Thanks.

I was leaning towards Oyster White. I didn't want to color-match 55-year-old gel coat.
