Re: Boat paint, and color.

The majority of boats are built with a white gell coat finish on the hull, they aren't painted, the color and finish are the fiberglass. Usually this finish just needs to be polished and waxed, and light scratches can be polished out. Once painted the hull is susceptible to scratches which may require periodic re-painting.
So try polishing a spot and see if it's painted already or the gel coat can be restored.
