The Black Biotch.

Wouldn't want it all black, but I am real happy with it the way it is.

I would never consider a black boat!
Black sides/stripes etc. sure, but all black deck etc?
No way. It might look cool and different, but boating to me is all about enjoying time on the water, hot sunny days etc. Black + sun do not work.

I had a dark red boat in the early 90's and learned to work with it,
but would never go back!

Thanks for the input. This is exactly what we're looking for as we had the same concerns. The plan is to put out a wicked a$$ boat but it needs to be practical. The black boat completely outfitted with high polished gold plated harware would look very trick but, we're going with opton B and the black will be special order only. I'll have some pics up soon, don't want to let the cat out of the bag just yet.
