Paint Code for off-white

I have been searching for the paint codes to match the gelcote of the 1980 Grand Banks 36 CLASSIC. I assume the color is consistant across the board. Would like to use the usual paints such as Awlgrip, Interlux, or etc to paint the window frames. Currently our boat is white which is not all that atractive.

Anybody know the code to match the gelcote?

Awlgrip has a Grand Banks white. If you can't find it PM me.

I did my windows, you can read and see the process at my blog, grandbankschoices.

You need to dig around to find it. Not a task for the feint of heart. A lot of work to get it right. Totally changed look of boat.

Mine look like that are molded into fiberglass. Really came out good.

That’s the look we want. Do you per chance know the code number. Can’t seem to find it.

GB Color

I had, and am having the same quandary on my 1978 GB32 Sedan.. I am working with Alexseal (2 part), which I have confidence in but started a few projects with a brighter white, Cloud White, that I refinished the aft cabin door, came out great but a bit brighter that the surrounding so rethinking an off white, eggshell, etc. You will find that although, folks have "Grand Banks" white, it seems more tan, and actually matches the color of interior non-brightwork wood components. Much more "tan" than our exterior white.... that being said... yours may match better to this GB white than ours. Color chart is out on Patience, but I can follow on with "closest" colors I am considering if interested. Good luck on this hunt!

I think there are two colors. Grand Banks beige and Grand Banks white. Would like to get the paint mix numbers for Awlgrip.

Awlgrip grand Banks white is H8304. So perfect it you get a drop on gelcoated you can't find it.

I have had Sherman Williams match the interior color in an oil based egg shell cabinet paint. PM me your email and I will send the code.

Be aware, the SW oil base takes a week to dry on a boat due to humidity. But it looks perfectly stock now. You can see it in my blog pictures. I rolled it with a small foam roller.

I have an Awlgrip color chart in front of me. I don't see the H8304 color on the chart. Is this a custom mix? I have removed hardware mounted on the gelcoat surface and find that the original color is slightly beige. Different from the faded-to-white color that I see on the exposed surface.
I ask because I have a paint job on my list of things to do too.

OK, scratch that- I just did a Google search and found that color. Apparently just not on this chart for some reason.

Under that white, once you remove the oxidation, is the original colour, whatever it once was.

Living in the deep south where 98% humidity combines with 90-plus temps and ac can be a struggle, I went with something you are NOT looking for in the Awlgrip I applied to my 1972 woodie GB42. I used Snow White Awlgrip, the whitest white I could find which could give you snow blindness on a sunny day. Different strokes...

The GB white will also give you the eye blindness. In Florida a good bottom job almost does.

I don’t know the difference but the folks at Spectrum were very helpful when I was working through a project. I’d recommend giving them a call to see if they can assist with the correct color match for your application.
Cheers!
