Not sea blue
The correct color is USN Blue Gray. Sea blue for aircraft did not exist in 1941.
I do not have a link to these, but they are the best source for VT-6 before Pearl Harbor. All the aircraft are in Non-Specular Sea Blue and Non-Specular Light Gray. There were no changes in how they were painted and marked in the time between when the photos were taken and 7 Dec 1941.
