Just read the 'Best colour to paint a boat' thread and it reminded me of a question I've had about boat canvas. Why is the vast majority of dodgers, biminis, sail covers, furling sail UV cover strips and virtually all things canvas covered on sailboats....BLUE?
Here in Floriduh, other than our boats, the only things with more blue on them are on the heads of the our older inhabitants(of which I'm one...so I can make fun
)! During my search for the 'next boat' I'm always reminded of the old adage of the model 'T'....You could have any color as long as it's BLACK!(well, blue in this case).
Anyway, there must be a reason for this blue phenomenon. A nautical thing...holds up better in sunlight...looks better with red, green, yellow?, blue or does it fondly remind us of the warm glow we males got after a rejected high school date?....no, that's another issue.
Yeah, this question ranks right up there with the Saturday Night Live's "Deep Thoughts with Jack Handy", but this inquiring mind wants to know. Any "thoughts"?
