White or cream? I use almond caulk, and while the boat is 20 years old, not sure what would blend better...

What do you have?

I bought cream and I thought it was good match. I called beckson and the guy ask what year Grady I had and he sent the right color.

Almond or cream. They fade and will blend in rather quickly. For any outside the cockpit (like motor wells), I'd go for the screw in model. Much more secure and can't pop out.

What do you think about Armstrong for the splashwell and Beckson screw-in for deck?

I bought white. I'm happy with it. My deck is way closer to white than cream.
I put screw type in motorwell.
I'm going to silicone them shut too this year
In reality, you are never going to use them unless you are removing a motor

not impressed with the new pop-out one's on the tank cover. still got a messy tank. On my list to investigate if it was the lids or the frame rings leaking.

I highly recommend installing a large rectangle Tempress hatch over the bilge pump

If you call Beckson, they will look up the color code for Grady and sell it directly to you. It’s not any of the mainstream colors you see at the stores.
