Default Small fiberglass repair

I miscalculated when I was leaving the dock and starboard stern hit the corner of the lower platform on the pier that caused a deep scratch and damage to the fiberglass. I removed all loose parts, sanded up to solid fiberglass surface, rebuilt with resin and fiberglass cloth and sanded smooth back to its original shape. The exposed new fiberglass surface is approximately 8 square inches, and the color of my boat is white. Can anyone chime in and tell me if I can just paint the repaired surface since it is just a small spot and what kind of paint should I use.

Dream White is the origional color and you can still get it in new gel coat to repair the area. IMO trying to match the paint will be hard.

Go to spectrumcolor.com. Talk to their customer service, they sell gel coat repair kits for a very close match...
