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

What a great looking Westsail! I agree that Navy seems to fade less than many other colors. While it is actually kind of counterintuitive, it seems that darker colors are affected less by UV rays than the lighter ones. I've had many other canvas shops tell me that they use White thread in most projects due to customer requess, but find that black thread stands up to UC damage longer.
