Default Anyone with a Whisper Grey color deck?

I am refitting an older Key Hopper flats boat and was thinking about going with Whisper Grey for the interior/deck. Now I am having second thoughts as I am thinking it may be too dark. My hull is a bright blue. Anyone have any photos of their boats with this color deck? Trying to get an idea of what it looks like. Thanks!

This thread has some pics:
Whisper grey and ice blue boats

I dunno though, in Florida I wouldn’t do anything but white as I’m usually barefoot in the boat and any color gets hot.


Here’s a few more who have it and say it’s hot.

I did medium heat hull with whisper gray top cap and interior sides. Tinted white gel coat for nonskid.

I did whisper grey Awl grip on my skiff’s deck. It’s a very light grey. Has just enough tone to cut the glare and never feels hot under foot. I’m not sure if Awl grip gets really hot or not regardless of the color.

Had it on a boat I sold last year... reduces glare but I found you see more scratches and dings than a white deck..........
