Re: Painting Topsides -- Gnarly Hurricane Dock Rash
If it's a Bristol, and the topsides are a very dark blue, they might be Awlgrip Flag Blue which is what Bristol would have used at the factory. The egg blue might be primer, over the gelcoat, which is white, yes.
On the other hand if the job was done by a PO, the paint could be Brightside.
In theory, you can only repair the damage with with the same paint.
What I would do in your situation is get some Awlgrip Flag Blue, and the matching Brightside, and brush them onto a couple of hard-to-see spots, and see if a) they match, and b) nothing horrendous happens, like peeling or bubbling.
Based on that, you can repair accordingly.
