Default Black Hulls

How do black hulls stand up? Will they fade?
Do they hide dirt? or do they show water streaks?
Would a water filter/ionizer help that problem?
And I'm not talking about the deck, just the hull.

A black deck tends to get hot enough to crack the gell coat. The constant expansion and contraction is more than the gell can take.

But they green looks so good against the black.
You see, I left the deck white.
Would navy be any better than black?

Had a black boat 1X...real pain in the azz. Every time it got wet, would get dirty water spotted. Fade became an issue over time, in spite of regular wax, and annual light rub. Once was enough.
