This might be a silly question but still a question.....Is there any protocol for the color that you might want to paint the hull of your boat......I have seen black...navy blue...red and some custom... I always liked red or maybe a hunter green just asking.....thank you all very much mark

The dark greens, blues, red, and black look great, "if" you keep them clean and waxed. Nothing looks prettier.....
Me, I'm lazy, so I'm a white gelcoat guy....

Only white for me too. Dark colors show imperfections more. I just like white for a sailboat. Plus, you won't have trouble selling a white hull boat.....not so much if painted a funky color.

I'm extremely partial to red below the waterline, dark blue hull, white deck.
The red helps when the boat is upside down so the SAR guys can see it. LOL

But Cloud's boat in grey looks VERY good....

But... Truthfully, other than below waterline I won't bother painting.
Too much maintenance. Our hull is in decent enough shape, that a cut and polish will more than do it.
But.. Blue does look good... so does grey... sigh. ;)
