Re: Topside Color

I think if you keep the decks a light colour, esp in summer with the sun higher the temperature difference due to hull colour will not be quite as noticeable as 20 deg.

We went from a medium gray deck to white and noticed a difference.. but most esp underfoot in the sun. The gray got too hot to walk barefoot.
