Cool New vinyl and Hull color

I've got a '97 Prostar 205 that I am redoing the upholstery. I'd like to go with white for the main upholstery color (black and blue for the accents) but the hull is an off white. I think it will look a bit funny. Has anyone used white with the off white or should I stay with an off white? Anyone with pics?

My Tristar is the same way. The fiberglass is almost alabaster in color. the original upolstery was also an off-white. I replaced it last Spring with vinyl that a bright white. I thought it might clash but in reality, it looks fine.

just a thought but off white would hide dirt better for those times when the mc ocd has to take a backseat to something else

here is a quick picture I took. It's a little hard to tell with artificial light. In direct sulight, the difference is even less.

The 1997 is "Oyster" in color. "Off White" vinyl is whiter, but blends pretty decent.

I had the same gel color on my 94 205 and the vinyl was grey. I quickly realized that the grey vinyl hides the dirty footprints much better than the white vinyl in my new boat. Just keep a towel handy at all times that you don't mind getting dirty.
