We have something in common! ... I've noticed little difference in the interior versus exterior temperatures on the Coot if there is natural ventilation.

And yes, I don't like the tropics where there are two seasons: hot and damp, and hotter and damp. I'm in the wrong place if I break out in a sweat in the morning, tying my shoes.

My AC could not keep up with my decks a light gray color and it was unbearable to walk bare foot on them. I switched them to a light beige now no problems with AC or sore feet. I change the boat from white to dark green side made no difference in cooling the boat. Most of my free board does not have interior space behind it.

That's a good reason for a light color on a steel boat - the rust will show up early enough that it can be repaired before it becomes a big problem..

My last boat had a black hull I couldnt believe the heat build up even in cool Alameda CA.

It was also tough to keep gleaning...I will stick with white hulls from now on.

White hides imperfections far better than dark colors.

What condition is the hull for surface imperfections?

The dark boat heat load is real , and insulation only SLOWS heat transfer , does not stop it.

Well, black is asking for trouble. Blue or green is much better.

Interesting! Since this "dark vs white" debate started, my wife and I went down to the boat on a day that was 86 degrees and 75% humidity. (That's hot for San Diego!) We could not stand to be in the salon until the boat cooled off but down below, in the owner's cabin, it was quite comfortable. The owner's cabin is surrounded by a blue hull and white cabin top.....

It's not uncommon that the temperature on the Coot's floors in the forward cabin and saloon is in the low 70s while the ambient temperatures are in the 80s. (Hot air rises, water temperature lower than the air in summer, stuff like that.)

Hemmingway's boat, Pilar, had a dark hull and a red superstructure I believe. And he ran it in Cuba & Florida waters.

"The coldest winter I ever spent, is the summer I spent on Coot"....or something like that

Hemingway also had Fuentes to keep planks and decks from drying out. The "New Pilar" is in the Carolinas (owned by Andy Garcia ). They were supposed to be shooting the movie, but so far nothing yet.
