Re: Topside Color

Gray gets almost as hot as black, even the slightest hint of gray.
I once sailed south across the equator with light beige decks. Before sailing home, I painted them white, the difference was huge, like adding air conditioning. Beige doesn't get all that warm in BC summers , nothing like gray. But down there it sure did.
