Gelcoat matching for Searider 5.4

I have been trying to find some gelcoat filler to match my Searider. She has a creamy coloured Gell coat, which I am reliably informed, is "Snow Cream", but I do not have an RAL number for it. She is a 1990 leisure model. Picture attached.

Short of guessing a match, anyone got any good ideas?

Cheers,
Tim.

I wonder if it's a BS colour like the grey ones?

<edit> The BS381C colour chart doesn't seem to have anything resembling it from what I can find online.

If you have the hull number and call Avon they should give you full colour spec. What you will probably find is Scott Bader (a company) has an equivalent colour. Thats what I did for my grey SR 5.4. But you will need a local supplier of their materials.
Regards.

I did, and they were my "reliable source in post #1

I Spoke with Llewellyn Ryland who put me intouch with a dealer in Poole, who supplies coloured gel coat filler packs to Gillingham Marina. Just need to find time to go to Gillingham.
