Stackpack is white-white, so I'm hoping to balance all that white mix with a dodger, fender covers, genny cover, and small stuff that match the boot & gunwhale.
I'll try to get swatches from a local canvas shop. Leaning toward standard Navy in light of contrarian's insight. A P.O. used "jockey red" new in 2009-ish that has faded massively and unevenly. I expect any color will fade, but I don't recall ever seeing old navy canvas looking too bad.

I mean, how can anyone distinguish some of these blues based on a 1"x1" sample? And who knew there was a "travel lift blue"!?
