My main sail cover is burgundy which matches the no slip areas on the boat I like it and so does the admiral. All is good

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

Think some boats are ruined by having too many different colors on the boats. Pictures show boats with blue trim and blue sunbrella etc. That looks nice. We went with tan decks ( easiest on the eyes in bright sun and good thermal color) so our sunbrella ( mainsail cover, insert between hard dodger and hard bimini etc) is that same tan. The insert in original post does not show that color. It's closest to nutmeg. It's amazing there are so many colors now you can nearly match anything. Threads also come in colors. Wash it where it sits with woolite on a soft nylon brush when it's raining. Gets rinsed right away and dries when the sun comes out.

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

My boat came with Pacific Blue when I bought it. I want to switch it to Linen. I like the lighter color, and it seems so many other boats have blue, so I wanted something different too.

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

I voted "Linen" on the poll, then looked it up and it's actually "Oyster". If I had to do it over I might go for "Mildew Green" to keep the maintenance down :-))

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

I went real different: Aruba on topsides and Ginkgo in the pit. I promise you, nobody else has my boat colors. Yay!

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

We have burgundy dodger and bimini but thought it would be too hot in the southern sunshine. We planned in the future that if we ever replaced them we would go with a lighter colour like linen. When we replaced our mainsail we were going to use linen for the sunshade and were advised that lighter colours don't standup to UV as well as dark colours so we wnt with burgundy. The longevity differential if I recall correctly was in the range of 5 years between linen and burgundy.
