We use clear gelcoat and add a pigment, if it is a small repair the colour match should be ok but anything other than tiny needs a great deal of care.

Channel Ribs is correct, you need to get hold of the right pigment and then mix it with the clear gel. This company normally stocks most of the pigments needed Blue Gee

Failing that you may have the fun of colour matching!
