Black is the most UV resistant , by far.

My Toast canvas just keep going and going. I recently reused a 7 year old awning (toast) to make spray cloths. We also have Navy canvas that has held up very well.

Charcoal grey, but considering a switch to Black or Captain Navy Supreme with Linen Flock. I've been taking courses at The Marine Canvas Institute and learned how to do a Bimini. Next session includes a Dodger I believe. I've also purchased a used Juki walking foot sewing machine. I may experiment first with something cheap. The Dodger intimidates.

I only have a main sail cover that is pacific blue but it is in need of replacement and Navy is my 1st choice of color so I voted Navy.

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

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

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.

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:
