Hi T37, yes it was the same color. Blue on blue, but there isn't much build-up. I could do my sanding and then make a switch to another color. The boat's boot and cove stripes are green anyway, so green or black would look fine.

On a related note, I took a pic of the boat just as she was coming out of the water, and the paint was not chipped...it was only after the power washing. Should I make sure that the yard uses a lower setting next time? The bottom was smooth before they power washed.
