  2. After selling out of last years red and blue models, Eric Justason has ordered another round of Koozies. The new color options are Blue with Yellow Logo, Red with Black Logo and Yellow with Blue Logo. He is making them available for $1.25 each. You can order yours via his Order Form or you can discuss them in this Thread. All proceeds from Koozie sales go into future SWAG production and event sponsorship.

    @rsg1963 Spectrum Color is the OEM gelcoat manufacturer. Call (800) 754-5516 during business hours and have your boat manufacturer, model, hull ID, and color of gelcoat you need handy - they will tell you the order number for the exact kit you need. If it is not any major amount of surface, 2oz. paste kit works best.
    Once you have the kit number, order it online from iBoats.com, it is about $30. Very good quality and the color match is perfect.

    Here is a good example:

    Thanks Greg, I checked that site and they do not show anything past 2011 for colors, so I called them. They verified their 'yacht blue' for the 2011 is the same as my 2016 and I ordered a quart (even though I only needed about a tablespoon's worth).

    For a small repair you definitely want the paste, not the regular gelcoat, color match notwithstanding.
    They sell 2oz. kits with paste+ MEK.

    Well, $104 later I'm getting the Gel Coat. I specifically asked her if they have a smaller size she said nope. So a quart is on it's way. Fantastic. :mad:

    @rsg1963, my recommendation is that you select the Space Blue patch color. If you get enough scratches and nicks, your boat will eventually look really nice. :winkingthumbsup"
