Can anyone confirm the standard hull and transom paint colours for my Swordsman 33 aft cockpit?

I think you'll find that 'Oxford Blue' is the base for the Transom colour being 9 parts of Oxford Blue plus one part Black which equals 'Britannia Blue'. As told to me by a painter that painted them at Hamble at the time.

I found Toplac Mediteranean White good for all the white work. The boat was in a very sorry state when I last saw it, wintered ashore with no cover overall or cockpit. Have you just bought it.

Not sure of the original colour, you may find slightly different colours used as requested by new owners and what paint was in the paint store at the time .I Use Mauritius blue no mixing and you can touch in with good match. I would post an image but not worked out how to yet. Nick

I'm a big fan of Mauritius Blue and Med White.

I will second that Mauritius blue. Itís a good shade of blue and like Nick pointed out straight out of the tin.
