Ha!  Y'all are wise beyond your years.  I told my wife she got to pick the boat, the gel coat, the interior...I at least wanted to pick the wheels.  :lol:

Honestly, the inserts just screw in so I might order a black set to keep around and swap out down the road if I don't like the colored ones.  Win win!

I tried that method with the trailer light bezel colors. She thought it was gaudy and stupid to match them to azure (why I thought she’d hate the wheels). But they still showed up on the trailer :blush:... now I hear about it all the time :lol:

I forget, whose boat is this one?  I am curious about that light graphite (old moonbeam) and graphite and how it was in this Texas heat.  I REALLY want to go light graphite and graphite for my interior, but as you can see in my first post, we got scared and went white and light graphite.  I will add I prefer not to be sitting on towels all day.  I don't understand the mentality of "sure the seats are flaming hot but they look great" as I don't think a boat interior covered in every square inch with towels looks that great.  :biggrin:

Thats my 2018. I can't really tell a noticeable difference in temp in any of the colors. I usually lay out towels in the bow for the kids and usually put out a towel on the back if we're going to be anchored for a while. Doing this helps with food crumbs, dripping water, and heat. We've never had an issue with the inside seats being hot, likely because our Bimini is always deployed. I suspect white would be essentially just as hot.

On my 2019 that I just ordered, I went with light graphite and graphite for it all, no white. 

EDIT: I will also add that I LOVED this interior and would not change a single thing about it. I was skeptical of this vinyl at first but really enjoyed it's resilience.

You're making this hard!  Thanks for the reply.  I LOVE your 2018 interior.  The only difference in ours would be vapor on the inside seat base.  I haven't been in the heat on the new vinyl, but I guess it's just hard to believe that the white and light graphite aren't that different in temperature.  In our 2005, if you step from the white on our sun pad to the moonbeam (which we know is very light grey) you feel like you're going to have 3rd degree burns.  Perhaps the newer vinyls displace heat better, but that experience has me so nervous to go away from white.

Keep in mind... the 2019 vinyl is all new (again) so comparisons to 2018 are almost meaningless. 

WSA tells me the 2019 vinyls is hotter. My response was an all graphite interior. Lol

I went with almost all light graphite.  Having been in it, I am hard pressed to believe it will be hot.  It is a very light color. The white is a brilliant white and will show every little smudge.  Given that my last boat was a brilliant white, and it was a little tough to keep clean, I went away from it this time.  

I do have a couple patches of dark graphite, but think I can deal with it.  On a 25, there seemed like too much real estate to not have it broken up a bit.  And I went with some red accents.

This still baffles me as I say the new vinyl is cooler, by quite a bit. But maybe it reacts differently in Texas ;)

You live where?  And picked up your 2019 in what month? :)   Perhaps it just hasn’t been hot yet.....

Michigan, and in August - first 2019 20VTX :biggrin:. Had it out a few times in 86-88 degree heat. Sat one day in that for 3-4 hours then we got back to the boat and the black in our boat was very warm but it was not burning by any means. Could step right on it barefoot.

Makes me wonder what the interior of my boat is going to be like in the sun.

Yours will be fine. Especially with the bimini up. Plus from a couple of the recent posts on here, it apparently doesn't get hot or sunny in Michigan - it is on the internet so it must be true! :tease2:

@Wakesetter67's boat gave us some inspiration too.

hell yah... this is exactly what i would do. I wouldn't change a thing. Black is no harder to take care of and doesn't get as hot as you think.

Hmm...what to do?!  I think our white shows so much more dirt than the moonbeam.  I would rather go darker but just don't know how to make that decision without sitting in one with darker vinyl out in the sun.

I think you should go with the interior you love, and buy a few extra towels for heat insurance. There’s a bunch of guys in your area with those colors that are happy so I think you’ll be fine. 

Here’s another example of a light graphite and graphite interior in the ‘19 vinyl colors. I’m going with this same interior but changing the seat bases and cushion bead to black.

Talked myself into going with the darker colors.  So light graphite and graphite with vapor on the seat bases.  Hope it's not too hot here in Texas.  :unsure:
