Closest I've come in Yacht enamel topside for touching up my Manatee was Interlux Premium Yacht Enamel, Hatteras Off White (3108?) or maybe Petit EZ-Poxy Modern Polyurethane Topside Paint, Hatteras Cream might be close. I just looked at West Marine for the Interlux and it shows "Item no longer available." You might be able to find it somewhere else. I refreshed my exterior front window frame last year when I replaced my crazed windshield. You really can't see a difference but since I'm getting older my eyes aren't as critical as they used to be. I'm also totally exposed to the elements so the sun has helped. It might depend on what surface your painting. Are you considering the whole topsides or just a section? I did a fiberglass repair on the pulpit and was able to do a whole portion so you can't tell from the sharp edges. I'll attach a photo that shows three views of the work in progress. Just make sure you clean and abrade the surface a bit so the paint sticks well. Good luck!
