Black is simply an option
My own 20 Alaskan is white with no bottom paint .

I agree with you, our first boat was black and it looked disgusting as we leave ours in the water all summer.

Our current boat is white with no paint on the bottom.

Pro V's have silver paint on the bottom, did you get one unpainted?

No, sorry it's painted silver then.

My point is black looks awful if it's anything less than perfect. My wife and I both drive black vehicles, not really from choice but they are very difficult to keep clean.

Was there any mention of an option to get a recessed trlling motor well in the pro guide, impact adventure etc? In the days of Ultrex I would have thought it would be an important issue? Must be possible as the prov bass has it, along with the center rod locker.
