Davidgriffiths (Ribnet member) has/had an all black 7m Vipermax, Disco console, 250 Etec. It looked very well. I wasn't quite brave enough to go for black grp. I was warned that getting the g/coat pigment even was tricky.

Steven,

Have you considered the possibility of wear patches also...

e.g there are some very smart RibQuests with Black tubes, grey wear patches (and I think a white hull)....

That's the thing ... Roy pointed out that white has a lot going for it because it doesn't show beaching scratches unlike every other colour, and it is pretty much the only colour you can easily get gelcoat repair in. Mainly I don't want a white interior because it will show the poo, but I must ask Roy if you can have a different coloured deck/consoles to the underside of the hull.

Mine has Grey non slip paint on the deck, and you can have the consoles and jockeys in whatever colour you want as well.

As Chris says, it's possible to have any colour combination.
The inside face of the transom has a gelcoat finish, the rest of the deck being flowcoat and non slip.
If you do decide on a different interior/exterior colour combination, just think about how it will look at the lip on the top of the transom, where the two colours meet.
