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

I have a burgundy color canvas on the boat, however, it's called dubonnet tweed. I was told the burgundy color would fade out and look pink with age while the dubonnet has black threads which keep the burgundy color better.

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

We've got 'Ocean Blue'.. it's got almost a more purplish hue like the deep water 'blue'.. a nice contrast to the sea of Pacific blue seen everywhere:

YELLOW will attract BEES and oter insects I had a custom car that was yellow and I was always getting bugs on the car at events.

Ocean Blue topside and the practically identical True Blue furniture grade in the cabin. In between Navy Blue and Pacific Blue at the first mate's insistence

Ooops. I thought ours is Beige, but I believe it's really Toast. Please account for this in your survey.
