A physicist might be able to explain it better, but even when the water in northern and tropical locales is very clear, there is still a difference. The tropical water is more turquoise and the northern water a darker blue. I think it must be related to the angle that the sunlight is coming at.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
