I had a black coccpit cover for my boat and bought a grey full cover and it is so much cooler inside the boat when I take it of as compared to when I use the black cover. I would choose a lighter cover.

Blue, Sunbrella products has 11 blues' too choose from. Depending on who you order from, they will send a swatch kit with all colors. Just ordered a Logo red for my FASTech. www.websweeper.com

i am really stuck on purple or black...i dont know if a gray or charcoal would look good. my brother wants an electric blue color to match the blue streaks. i think even that would attract a lot of heat.

Blue would be my choice also, bring out the blue on the boat some more, and not overly hot

I think black would look the best, blue second, purple third and forget gray.

Just had all new covers made last year. The cockpit and bow cover I went with charcoal gray sunbrella. The trailer cover is light gray.

thanks for the responses guys...i am still tossing around black or purple. i dont think gray or charcoal will look good.

any deep hue color is going to attract heat whether its blue, purple, red etc...the only way to get away from that is with silver, gray or white...which arent too appealing looks wise or dirt wise.

what are others using?
