my last boat after a few summers the black got brittle and came apart. the other colors were still soft and flexable. I was told by the vinyl guy that did the interior over that it is normal because of black absorbing so much heat.

I prefer as much white as possible on the vinyl. Colors just get way too hot.

The first generation carbon fiber material wore quickly. The new stuff is great, per Nortech, and Active Thunder. I ordered blue, silver and graphite on my new boat. The purple on my 04 4300 was not bad at all, and just came back from a run to the Keys on a few A.T.s with carbon fiber and no problems, but it was not 90 degrees. Jeff
