The carbon cloth on the bow deck looks great but aren't you concerned about excessive heat build up and subsequent epoxy softening/weakening when it is exposed to direct sunlight? I have worked with carbon cloth on glider wings etc. but we always ensured they were painted white before exposure to the sun. This was to keep the heat down and avoid any damage as uncovered black carbon cloth laminate can heat up very qickly to excessive temperatures in sunlight?
