Yesterday, I placed my order for a 70kw, auto pilot with upgraded seats (this is my first post). I chose the multi-coat deep blue, but my daughter told me that white would be a better color for practical reasons. The following rationales were provided and I need to make a decision within a few days: She believes that blue will show scratches and dirt more than white. As I live in Southern Florida, the white may require less cooling, thus increasing range a bit. Repairs on the multi-coat blue may be more expensive than the plain white. Please give me your opinions about which color makes most sense. I do like them both. Thanks. Happy to join this group.
