Just a question, I'm in the market for some new seats for my boat. For those of you that are out there in the Texas summer heat, does it matter if the seat is a dark color or light color? I saw some nice black seats, but was worried that they may get too hot while fishing in the Texas summer heat. Thanks for your input.

I never had black seats but I have had Maroon/dark red seats and gray seats and couldn't tell any difference....

Black seats will be fine, just don't sit on them.

I think that they do get hotter. Motorcycle seats are black and ever sit on one of them in the middle of a hot day? They hold that heat forever. The grey, while hot doesn't feel as bad and cool down much quicker IMO. Just throw a towel over them while not sitting.
