Right. Because everyone laughs at Ted Day and ghost rider. And Steve gets laughed at too with his white boat, because it's dirty (WTF?) Get a clue dude. Who gives a shit even if people do laugh? We're catboaters, people either shake their heads or laugh at us.
On fabrics, there was/is(?) some tan that was different than the rest of the fabric. It was a military spec that Sotar bought. Supposedly there were some issues years ago? I believe the SP model is made with this, and the boat does cost less.
And note there are only 3 pieces of fabric on each tube, (inside/outside/bottom), not 4.
