    welcome!

    factory finish as far as I know was all gel coat, kind of 'oyster white'

    any paint has been done after.

    post pictures!

      thanks for the reply! this boat has never been touched,

      sat in a rack up in the great lakes all its life. could it

      be discolored somehow?

        tkimon, post some pics, hard to tell from the words!

        you could have staining from the water, or old wax. strip and rewax?

        nice 'barn find'
