    The build record for a 1967 OT 18' guide indicates G.S. green as the paint color. Does anyone have a chip indicating the color?
    Thanks, Gil

    I'm not aware of any original color chip or PMS code for G. S. green. It was probably slightly lighter than the more typical dark green. I would encourage you to just pick a shade that you like. The known Old Town paint charts are shown at http://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?threads/7345/ including one from the 1960s which does not include G. S. green. Sorry,

    Benson

    This is a customer's canoe. I suspect that G. S. stands for guide's special, which likely has a matte finish instead of gloss. Colorwise; we may just have to guess; probably as you said, slightly lighter,
    Thanks Benson.
