Powder coat color

Hello,

I am looking to Powder my frame and dry boxes but not sure what color to get. I have attached a photo of my new raft. My oars are going to be black with black blades. I am looking for picture with the similar color boat to get an idea to what color. Anyone have any suggestions?

I am thinking black frame with light blue boxes???
or dark gray frame and boxes??


Thanks

I'd avoid black. While it would look sharp on that boat, it just gets too hot sitting out in the sun. The lighter and brighter the better from a function standpoint.

Something about a new boat is just so cool. The possibilities are endless. Congrats!

I think I'd do a gray for the frame, maybe more of a gunmetal gray, not too dark, not too light so it doesn't match the boat. I think if you have something else black to match your D ring patches it will look pretty slick. And congrats on the new boat

Agree. Black will be hot.

Speechless.

The only part of this that is OK is the light blue boxes. You won't find a picture of a black frame and oars because no one has ever done it before for good reason.
You want your oars to be high visibility so when your shit is floating down the river you can find it. So anything but a dark color would help.

I don't think a black frame would be a big deal. People run black rafts. It's not enough surface area to make a huge difference I bet. Plus homeboy lives in Oregon.

Do the black frame with blue boxes - you'll have the best looking rig on the water!

Black oars are dumb - you will lose them...

Really? I've never seen one. I have a bright green Aire and a rafting buddy has a much darker green Maravia, and his boat gets too hot to touch it when in the full sun (it doesn't always rain here, especially on the east side). I can only imagine that a black raft would be much worse. I'm sure they look pretty badass though, just like the OP's boat would look with a black frame. Just don't touch it with the back of your leg when your rowing!
