Is Black Coloured Ribs Just A Passing Fad???

Hi Guys Getting close to ordering my new rib was just looking your opinions on colour schemes i like the look of the black hypalon tubes with a red flash design what would you think of this colour selection in terms of looks and resale potential? or should i sway more with lighter coloured tubes in case black is like white cars they go in and out of fashion quite often?

Don't know about a fad, but just imagine on a hot sunny day ( when we get one).how hot these tubes will get! The words, arse and burn spring to mind...

This might help as an example. It's a newly launched Scorpion RIB, expensive and quite desirable, grey fabric tubes with teak deck. Very mart and would possibly still be desirable in a couple of years.

I used to have an all black rib. I don't think you'd have any trouble selling it on. Everything did used to get very hot on summers days, and you'll need to make sure it's got pressure release valves fitted. Other than that, it was quite easy to keep clean - just needed a rinse to get all the salt off.

IMO Too many people worry about the Fad's.. ease of re-sale Value's ect. Infact...it motivates all sorts of Crap on hereA well designed,Ballanced,well layed out Boat well maintained, will always appeal to someone.
By all means give it some thought and research..but in the end.. Have some BALLS and get what YOU like!! Yours is the main opinion Surley!?
If you have to worry THAT much about re-sale, maybe a Rental Option may suit some better
Oh.. and Black Tubes are Great!
