    Boat outfitters has a color called seafoam that matches makos pretty good.

      You might be referring to the "Fish White" shade on the Starboard color chart.

          Seafoam is almost an exact match to mako gelcoat. I replaced some of the hatches on my old 231 with seafoam starboard and couldnt have been happier with the results. Pictures of the hatches I made may still be in my 231 restoration thread unless photobucket took them down. The only downfall is that it is slippery when wet so keep that in mind if youre going to use it anywhere you may be walking.

            PoleLock--those are just the ones that BoatOutfitters seems to sell.

            See the full list on the King Starboard website, in the Colors "+" tab:

            On my own boat, FWIW, and on the pieces I got from Buck Plastics, the "Sanshade" color was used. See my boat pics in the link in my sig below.

            As for getting some, your local plastics guy, or sign manufacturer, should be able to order you a sheet of whatever you need. I recommend the 3/4" thickness, FWIW. Thick enough to round over the edges, strong enough, does not look cheap.

                Haaa...I'm in the same boat...eye doc said I suffer from the most common color blindness, having trouble seeing red and green colors. I guess that's why my wife never lets me pick the paint or carpet colors [B)] []

                Perhaps you could get a sample kit to make sure you get the color you perfer.

                I always thought that "Seafoam" color was a very light green???

                You are correct...the King Starboard website offers even more color options...I would certainly call them and see if samples are available.
