I will add that my rely was based on a email Brendan send me several years ago and I took his advice. He is the expert and urge you do the same. Anyone know a good source for flattener/deglosser?

:: The original interior of most Santa Cruz built boats was
:: 'Polycore'--as mentioned a gelcoat with flattener and
:: wax added for surface application.
::
:: After many attempts to source the original material I
:: made my own to touch up the interior of my Express 37.
:: Color matching was very hard because the original
:: interior had become many different colors due to
:: exposure, embedded dirt and mold, etc. I achieved close
:: to the original color by adding black and yellow
:: coloring to white gel coat.
::
:: If you go this route, do test batches and don't forget
:: to add flattener and wax (without wax you will make a
:: sticky mess). I used small disposable foam rollers for
:: application and got a fairly consistent texture.
::
::
:: On my e27 I have repainted the entire interior with
:: System 3 WR-LPU (Whidbey White, which is a light tan). I
:: can't recommend this paint highly enough. It thins and
:: cleans with water, but once this two-part LPU dries it
:: is super strong and has a very similar feel and
:: durability to the polycore. Touching it up is super easy
:: as well.
::
::
:: My original interior was a grayish color--not sure if
:: all the boats were the same inside. The Whidbey White
:: from System 3 matches the original interiors of Moore
:: 24s very well--I've used it several times for that...
::
::
:: good luck,
