Default Brown Gel Coat Source?

I've removed a non-working automatic trim tab setup from my 2800, but it left some nasty holes underneath the steering wheel where the displays were mounted. Any idea where to get the light brown smooth gel-coat-like stuff that's coating the entire dash so I can patch the holes without it looking like total garbage?

Picture of the dash for reference:

Spectrum made the gel coat Maxum used.

Even if you get the same exact color code from the same manufacturer, two things will work against you.

1) production lots don't always match
2) The dash has most assuredly faded some in 19 years.

You will more than likely need to color match.

How about an 'Ass, Gas, or Grass..nobody rides for free' placard?? LOL!!!!

I'd consider covering it with a plastic plate, then stick a SeaTow/Boat US emergency contact sticker on it. (It's always good to ensure guests know how to call for distress if the captain is incapacitated).

Yeah, that's not a bad idea, haha. I like it. Maybe fill it with bad color matched gel to get the texture right, then cover it with a sticker.
