Colour match

Trying to match the colour of my hull for repairs to scratched gelcoat. I reckon it's a dark orange, the wife reckons red...Anyone know if Humber use/used a standard colour - it's a 2001 boat. Pics attached. Thanks.

Give Humber a call and ask for the RAL code. If they can give you the RAL number give it to a specialist paint supplier and they will mix the correct colour for you. Obviously there may be a difference due to fading etc.
