Hi George,
Because of the glare of bright white that is why I did paint the cockpit and benches and the bulkhead in the off white colour creme. Being colour blind is a handicap in painting anyway, but I can see at least some difference between 2 paints when they are next to each other. The top of the hatch and the deck is still bright white and until splashing time I leave it that way except that I have to put another topcoat on because I have some dings and scrapes from working with deck fittings. Right now I am making the 3rd version of seat straps to lean against while sitting on the cockpit benches. Number 1 I built from black bag straps and when it was finished I did not like the black straps on the boat. Number 2 I built from leftover white lashing straps just to find out it was not wide enough and that is why I ordered 2 inch wide red strap material and fitting carabiners. That is definitely the last version for the cockpit straps not to become a stickler for details.
Greetings from Karl

If you're going to put another coat on, I'm with das boot and recommend you continue, or switch as the case may be, to off-white.
