I am having my 1974 MII painted this week and contacted South Shore Yachts to ask for an Awlgrip color similar to an off-white original color offered back in the 70's he told me they used to use Smoke White but had no idea what color that would translate today in Awgrips color wheel.  

Anyone cross this bridge yet while fixing-up their boat?  I searched the forum and did not see another post.

Thanks in advance.

Kats-Paw-1 was painted a couple of years ago and her colour was either Eggshell or Insignia White (there are conflicting memories), which is a very slightly warm, very slightly grey white. It's very close to the original C&C white.

Whatever you do, don't get a bright white - a friend got a mix called Arctic White and it's blinding.

Thanks for the follow-up. It looks good, but you can't tell the exact shade of colours from photos. Did this give you the original-gelcoat look you wanted?

I'm glad you are happy with your choice of white, but surely "Smoke White" would have been close to perfect?!?!?
Happy sailing
