I'm looking at a couple boats. The one I am leaning towards is black with silver accent. Over all a dark boat no white at all.
My question is what draw backs are there to a black boat.

I know it will be hotter. any thing else?

buddy had a black and silver Triton...looked good the day he brought it home...that was it...and they get hot in the sun...if you get dark carpet too plan on the temp in your livewells to go up more than light colored, as well as the storage boxes...I had a silver and blue Ranger with dark blue carpet and I would open all the storage boxes at the end of the day to let the radiant heat out...they look nice but have a lot of draw backs...oh yeah stay away from east Texas red mud...enjoy what you get !

Yep, but what you want will be real hot in the summer and hardest to keep clean. :-)

Black cars/boats are really pretty WHEN CLEAN, but my experience, it is hard to keep them clean.
JMO, but I have found white seems to stay cleaner looking longer.

Good luck in your hunt for a new rig. Wish I had that kind of decision

Go with what your head/decision tells you.....

My last five Skeeters, including my current one, have been black. Not flat black (except the hull) but metal flake (black galaxy). However my cap is platinum mist or silver hologram which is just as reflective as white, looks better and doesn't show dirt like white. I don't find the boat hard to keep clean at all and it has a very distinctive look that I like.

Black is beautiful. Especially black rangers.
