Question Awlgrip Repairs

I have a 41 ' Ketch with Flag Blue Awlgrip topsides. I don't know how old the Awlgrip is, but I am guessing 8-10 years. There are a few scratches that show gelcoat white. I want to touch up the blue so it doesn't look so beat up. I know that I can't match it exactly, but I thought there might be a touch up job I could do like when you scratch the car paint. None of these scrathes are more than 1/2' wide but they really bother me.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, PAL

Depend if is awlgrip urethane topcoat or awlcraft 2000 acrylic urethane,the last one is harder and you can buff and polish to macht,
if you are going to use some filler to level the scrachts try to use a blue pigment in the filler, i dont know how big are the spots in your hull, for smalls scrachts a small brush pencil works nice for me , you cant try with PREVAL sprayer with good results to, mask the area surrounding well....
If you dont know the code color of your hull, try to take a bit from the scrachts and show up in the shop .
Best Regards.

Awlwash and Awlcare Products

Awlgrip offers touchup kits. Not every color but you can sometimes mix to match. Eg: mystic green + black = dark green

I found the early kits had quite short shelf life, literally dried up on the merchant's shelf. Hopefully these are improved.
