Contact beacon marine. ut due to ageing a good match would be hard at best.

If there is a fiberglass supplies shop near you, they usually have the equipment to come out and do a scan of your gelcoat color and will mix a batch for you. It'll be the closest you'll get over anything off the shelf.

If you want to know what color your boat was, remove a blower cover and look underneath.
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!
