Spectrum supplied the gelcoat material.

Note after all these years the sun has faded you gelcoat so it may be best to buy a kit to color match it. You mix tints until you get a match.

Whether you mix the color yourself, or use the pre-mixed shades, your results will be determined by how well you level and smooth the repair. I used the pre-mixed colors from Spectrum on some nasty scratches on 12 year old gelcoat. 3 rounds of progressively less aggressive sanding, then compounding with a wool pad, and the results are near perfect. The shine from the wax hides any color variance.
