Kimmel may have been out of 5-D, but the real question is:

Was Mare Island--the USN's West Coast paint factory--out of 5-D? I doubt it, and MI would have been able to resupply PH at short notice.

PS: Going back to the initial post on this thread, the change to Measure 1 was not from Haze Gray, it was from #5 Standard Navy Gray which was the prewar/pre-SHIPS-2 color.

In support of John Dobbin's posts, one should also note that unless a ship was in a yard availability, it did not matter what the shipyard did or did not have, the fleet would paint as needed from their own stocks, according to what color /measure directive they had in their possession at the time.

Though I must add that my wife says that no amount of mouse clicking will settle the debate over the blue and the gray . . .   but I think she is referencing an earlier conflict.
