I am building a aluminum jet boat 23 feet long and need help coming up with a color scheme as the construction of the boat is coming to an end. The boat being made of aluminum there is a lot of light grey on the sides of the boat. The top cabin area I would like to be white as it is cooler in the hot summer months. My problem is selecting a color for the floor carpet, bow and rear deck. I have been advised to get dark grey as it hides dirt the best. The two bench seats would have a dark blue strip down the center with the edges of the seat being dark grey and the balance light grey with blue double stitching around the edges. It seems I will be going from a white colored boat to a dark grey. If I go with a lighter colored flooring I end up with a dirty mess or a lot of work keeping it clean. I want the carpet as it is easier on your feet and you don't slip as easily as you would on an aluminum floor.
