Ya know thats a fine idea! Perhaps we could all do it, and build a database of which colors are fastest for which boats. What color is your boot stripe?

But we might be able to make some predictions. For example, if the sun is in front of you, a darker color might be better, because photons bouncing off the boot stripe will imped forward progress. Conversely, a bright color when the sun is behind you will contribute to forward momentum.

Oh God yes, terribly slow!
sounds like the stickers on a riced out japanese sports car--lol---makes no difference---if ya gets 5 mph more outtta a stickjer, is just alll in yer mind...boot stripes are a matter of personal preference....have fun and enjoy your boat....
