    I recently acquired a 1995 220 BR SS with a nice sized chip out of the gelcoat. I would like to repair it. Based on all the threads I read here I sent Sea Ray an e-mail and asked for a build sheet and color codes for the gel coat where I can order from Spectrum.

    The response that I got back said to talk to a dealer as it was over 10 years old. That seems kinda odd since the dealer is surely going to have to just ask them.

    I'm almost 100% sure it is Arctic White based on the sales brochure included with the docs I got with the boat, but Spectrum has 2 version that both cover a 1995 model.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on how to figure out which one would be best to order?

    Thanks!

    Did you ask them about "1995 260 bowriders" in general, or did you provide your actual hull ID number?

    I sent them my HID and they sent me the gelcoat numbers.

    Artic White 5776W90598
    Midnight Blue 5799A90027


    Just pick a large Sea Ray dealer at random (like one in Florida where they sell lots of Sea Rays) and give them your HID # and specifically ask for the gelcoat colors / numbers. They will be able to provide them to you.

    I did give them my HID. I'll search around and give a dealer a call and see if that will get me there.

    I ended up never getting an absolute answer from anyone, so I just took my chances and ordered one of the two options from Spectrum Color. When it arrived I was a little disappointed because it was VERY white compared to my hull. The only way you can see the damaged spot is to get under the trailer anyway, so it wasn't the end of the world.

    I cleaned up the damaged area and put in some of the new gelcoat. Let it cure for a while and started wetsanding. It turns out that the color is a perfect match and the hull is just really stained! I didn't build the damaged area up enough so it is going to take another application and some more sanding. Now I've ordered a buffer and some compounds. She is going to look like a completely different boat when all the staining and oxidation are gone!
