Getting the itch to get a new boat. Like the clean look of white gel coat for the interior but not sure how easy it is to keep clean and will it yellow over time?

What other colors do you guys like in the Texas heat?

I am really leaning toward a Skeeter, but don't see Platinum Mist as an option when building a boat on their website?

I think Diamond Sports is a Skeeter dealer now.

That color Chris said is an excellent choice

It may be called Silver Hologram II, now.

I was at Diamond Sports last week and they have a couple of Skeeters there now, a ZX225 and FX21 LE I believe.

I found that color Chris, it does look good.

Yes, that is correct but they do have some really good looking color combos in the ZX series as well.

Grey gel is what I chose for my new boat. I figured it wouldn't get to hot or reflect to much light. I really like grey to.

I have Laser Red polyflake for my interior gel. I haven't noticed any fading of any sorts on my boat, and it doesn't get too hot on the inside. I have white on my top cap and haven't noticed any fading yet. My boat is only 3 years old though.

I have had two in white/Silver Hologram. Just reversed the colors and threw in a different pin strip. I loved both of them.

I have white.....it gets really nasty looking really fast. I'd pick one of the silver colors if I had a choice. White is obviously the least likely to get hot. But, it is only really nice looking for a very short time. Fish blood, and water grime make it look like [censored] pretty quick.

My Allison is white gel inside and out, grey carpet with a small red and black stripe on the side. The white is easy to clean and doesn't show small scratches. I had a Bullet that was black inside. Never could keep it clean.
