    Interesting. Guess it will never be completely blue or completely white. Lower parts of the hull, close to the waterline, will be cooler than areas around the sheer, I presume? And then the wind, cooling only the upwind side...
    Would be interesting to see these effects on a real boat.

    I live in Florida, so I guess my boat would always be white?
