My Ute has the Seamark covering as well and I've spent some very hot days on the water here in NY, open cockpit, no problem.

As a side note I was reading about canvas colors a while back and learned that darker colors a enjoy a longer lifespan for the material. Apparently it takes Mr. Sun longer to penetrate those dark colors and eat the threads. You should get many many good years out of your boat DoiNomazi.

Thank you. We picked the color mainly because we like to blend and get easier access to wildlife. There could be a bit of condensation when paddling long and hard on a very hot day, but over all we enjoyed our (all black) boat.
