Post Which color other than white for cockpit on my Active Thunder

Hey everyone, Im having my Active Thunder 37AVH built. They are fine tuning the exterior colors and I want something different than a white or all white cockpit. Some color that might not be too hot would be great. My boat can be viewed at www.activethunderboats.com go to graphics and scroll down to Radioactive. The exterior is to be a dark to light fade purple. one side will be a candyapple red faded to a tangerine then yellow, the other side will be a candyapple green faded into 2 colors of uncertainty at this point, WHAT IM LOOKING FOR ADVICE IS ON INTERIOR COLOR, I really like purple but dont know if its to hot in the summer time since all my boats have been white. Thanks for the help.

I have purple as one of my interior colors too. I love it. I also have white and it's a real pain to keep clean.

I have white, light blue and red. The light blue is good in the sun while the red gets a bit hot.

I had a boat with tangerine orange seats. No problem with the heat.

Thanks eveyone, Its sounds like purple won out, thats the color to me that looks good. I saw that color on a few powerplays but was worried about the heat. Ill ask Steve to change the color and see what you guys think. Thanks for the input.

Bulldog, things are going great in Diamonhead, real busy, thank god, I just hope the boats ready for the Tic Fa 200, see ya there.

Light purple. There's a Cigarette down here with a light purple cockpit that looks really sharp. Maybe do some accents in the other colors of boat, like on the seat backs, where it won't matter about being hot.
