I'm getting ready to paint
the forward net on Cat2Fold. It is a large, vinyl coated mesh with only 1/4" square holes. Probably 30-40% open. Cat2Fold is getting some new colors added and I was wondering about painting the net red. However, we've been mostly using the boat down in Mexico
where it can get hot. Would the net get too hot to walk on barefoot or hangout on with lots of skin exposed?
The net is currently white, but is all stained from rust and what nots. I could paint
it white again, but it will get dirty again quicker. Not to mention that I hear white paints don't have nearly the UV protection as dark paints.
I just finished making a rear net out of 2" webbing (white) and painted it red. It looks GREAT! But, it is for carrying paddleboards and surf boards, not for stepping on (6"holes).
I'm mostly wondering what the collective thinks about the heat build-up of the red compared to white.
I'm also planning on painting the dodger
tent living area) top red, and I wonder about the heat from that also.
