Default NEW Cockpit Carpet.

I stopped by Custom Marine Carpet in Niles MI today to see about getting a new carpet for my 26 Powerquest. I had pretty much settled on going with the light gray which is what the boat came with. However when I walked in he a beautiful purple carpet sitting there all finished with the Baja logo cut in it. Purple would look awsome in my boat but I'm a little worried about fade and heat with the purple v.s the light gray.
Anyone have the dark purple?? Thoughts??? Also I have the 20oz and I beleive the better is a 40 oz (might be wrong there). Will the 40 or heavier carpet hold more water?? I've got 3 kids and they are in and out of the boat wet and the 20 oz seems to dry out pretty quick.

Go with the 40oz and we did not have a problem with the purple fading in Florida.

My purple has just a hint of fade, but only if you knew it. Doesn't get hot at all, but the Fountain logo in black on the other hand..... ouch!
