Blue stripe on topside

I want to paint the blue stripe on my topside (cabin). It is a 1980 S&S Swan. Can anyone help me with the right awlgrip color name?

Dear Robbert
This is the darker blue, Norpol 7005 in gelcoat notation.
The suggestion is to compare with an Awlgrip colour chart. Possibly a mix of two colours is needed.
Kind regards

Hello robert,

May this is the right color, same color code than the professor mentioned.

I just did my stripe and dorades two days ago.

It is a jotun two part polyurethane paint.

May that will help you.

I have been using Marlin Blue from Awlgrip.

Seems OK!

Hello Lars,

Do you know the gelcoat colour codes for the original white hull and pale blue coving line on the S&S36?

Thanks and best wishes!

Lars,

Apologies - I've just found your post from June 2010 with this information.

Thanks as always!

This has not been mentioned on the Forum as far as I can remember.
Swan 36 used Syntes gelcoat, but he production of this gelcoat was ceased around 1970, and it was necessary to find an alternative, then Norpol came into use.
Their colours are not exactly the same, and unless you do the complete surface it would be advisable to try to find out if a mix of two colours can be close enough.
The old gelcoats are not as weather resistant as the newer ones, and may with the time change their colour slightly.
Kind regards
Lars
