Default Heat retention of Line-X Ultra?

Iím interested in Line-X Ultra for a T-Top but uncertain on color choice for a couple reasons:

I think I visually prefer white, but as a fishing charter boat, there are dirty sun-screened hands on the bars all day every day. How hard is it to keep clean under non-stop use and abuse?

If this means that gray or black is a better choice for me, my next concern is temperature. I canít help but imagine a black rail gets super heated on a July afternoon in the South Carolina sun. But I see these black Line-X t-tops in use on boats across the southeast, so perhaps there is some heat resistance involved. Whatís the scoop? Does this stuff stay cool to the touch, get moderately heated, or will I burn the skin off my hands?

Line-X Material is very thermal conductive IE it transmits the heat into the substrate. In addition our material has a small texture to it and that also breaks up UV a bit to reduce heat. In short our black tops are not hot at all. We have tweaked our white spec to allow hose n go cleaning. Our white is a bit more shiny then our black or gray but it is easy to clean. Feel free to call me to discuss. Thanks in advance - Brian my cell (941) 524-8500
