I'm a fan of the black, I think it looks good on almost all boats that have some black in their color scheme. However, damn the interior is hot after a couple hours in the hot summer sun!

What material? I've always been a fan of charcoal grey. Goes with everything.

I'll be the oddball and go Purple. It would look good with the graphics, and you could use a lighter shade that wont heat up or fade as bad.

Silver.........The darker colors attract LOTS of heat and fade much quicker. Justin, I had a red full cover last year on the Cig and went to the dock to go out, could barely touch the boat under the cover it was so hot!

I'm changing my vote.....SILVER. I agree with Kreed...too much heat and fading.
