Re: Sunbrella: What color is used on your boat?

Yellow looks great for a couple of years, then it shows a lot of dirt and kind of browns as it fades.

My boat also uses Captain Navy for canvas. Based on walking around my marina this appears to be the second most popular color after Pacific Blue. There is also a dark green (if you look closely it is woven with brown) called Ivy that is quite nice and pretty common.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
