    Non skid paint color?

    Iím in the process of painting the anchor locker lid non skid and trying to identify the color paint to use. Iíve just found out the hard way itís not off white. Looking at the color chart again Iím wondering if itís Bristol Biege. Anyone know if Ericson had a standard color for the non skid?

    4208 Hatteras Off White, at least that's what it most looks like on my vessel. Don't know why they're calling it Hatters on the color samples.

    It still looks a little bright. I'm leaning towards Bristol Beige. Anyone painted their non skid recently?

    Brightside Color Match for Non-Skid

    Hi Mike,

    It looks like you painted the anchor locker lid from your blog entry photo.

    How did the Bristol Beige color match the non-skid? It looks a little dark in the blog photo but it's hard to tell. Did you investigate a custom color match?

    I need to do some spot paint (sea hood, propane locker lid) but only if I can match the non-skid color. I'll also have to match Perfection which has different colors.

    Thanks!

    Mark

    Custom

    As far as I can tell there isn't an "out of the can" match for the Ericson non-skid. I did a repair on the mast step for my 28 and the Hatteras Off White is definitely lighter in color. If you can get some pigment you may be able to adjust the color starting with the Hatteras as the base. The Beige looks a bit too dark. If the sun ever shines again I'll try to post a photo.

    Mark, yes the Bristol Beige is darker than the rest of the non-skid. I've still got to repaint he propane locker lids as well and I'm planning to mix up a batch of off-white with it
    to see if I can make a match or I'll try the Hatteras off-white. BTW I've found the the color charts are not that useful for matching the non-skid.
