Looks like the regular, hot version to me! Although it may not matter as much in Canada.

I generally look at the print outs on the transom of the boats to see what options and colors are actually on the boats. There's a lot to keep track of during boat show season and I don't expect everyone working in a booth to have every color / option memorized. But I would expect them to know the difference between cool feel and regular.

Yes, that does not look like CF fabric to me. There should be texture in it... se my close up photos.

What are you using to clean the cool feel black?

New news from MC, you should only use a small batch fresh IPA for the lighter fabric or barrel aged Porters for the dark (like navy and black). This will avoid the issues I have had. Always make sure to drink the remainder.

So is Stoli not recommended? I thought it worked well in previous boats.

No. They only recommend that on the older smooth vinyl.

Went up front to inspect and saw that the top "epidermal" layer was peeling off. I then saw more areas around the boat. It starts as a little bubble that pops... at least that is what happened in one spot. My boat is never really trailered or outside unless its in the water being used. It lives at the lake, on a lift undercover.
There’s absolutely no way i’d pay for any part of this......
