Thinking a lighter colour would be better I chose "linen", a light tan colour for all my canvas (dodger, bimini, connector and full enclosure) when I got a new boat in 2004. In six seasons in the Bahamas it has lost most of its coulour. Also light colours do not work as well for protection from the sun. If I could do it over I would choose Flag Blue, a very dark navy blue, nearly black. It fades a lot less than the light coulours and when it gets dirty (which it will) it doesn't show it. And it's not hotter than a light colour.
Toronto in summer, Bahamas in winter.
