Spectrum gel naming

I need a small patch kit for my boat but only finding the big tubs available in sunrise yellow for mastercraft. I am finding the same name for other brands and similar years listed with spectrum. Odd on this being the same color as the naming is identical?

This is the possible gel alternative. It’s either this or sunshine yellow for 2012 which is most likely different.

Here is what little I know;

Mix and match kit from Scamazon is a decent kit. It allows just that...mix and match. On the existing gel after any reasonable amount of time with ultraviolet light exposure, the gel will fade to some degree. Thus this kit to be able to find the shade you prefer.

Also this kit.

If the Spectrum route is what you are satisfied with, all the better. I think it would work just fine.

US$0.02

That’s for the reply. I tried the mixing kits before with okay results in white. Matching in yellow has me worried as I hear it is one of the more difficult colors to work with. I called spectrum and they confirmed it to be a different yellow and the smallest they sell is a quart. :/

I've never used these folk: FibreGlast, but they came highly recommended by a fiberglass shop that has "been matching old gel coat for 40 years". Over 900 colors available and you can order a gel coat color book and then get a refund when you order supplies. Looks like a quart might be the smallest qty but having a color chip to match with might save a lot of time.
