Interlux White vs Matterhorn White

Hi. Does anyone have any experience with the different flavors of white for Interlux? I'm going to paint my dory hull white, but the online color charts are funky with White looking a lot like cream. Anyone have any pictures of their boat if you used some the Brightsides whites? Thanks for any help you can provide.

   Oh, and Matterhorn white is from Interlux too. Sorry if that wasn't clear. 

RE: Interlux White vs Matterhorn White

   I used Interlux Brightside Mono White on our two Chesapeakes.  The paint is easy to apply, has held up well and easy o touch uop when required.  Posting several pictures below.  The only real complaint is that in bright sunlight the white hulls are so bright that they are hard to photograph.  Notice how the hull almost appears to be over-exposed in several of these pictures.

I also find really white paint a visual problem, as well as Mark's photographic one. The glare is too much for my eyes on sunny days, so I've used white mixed with blue and a tiny touch of black to give a Carolina blue, or sort of a swimming pool blue if you're a wolf pack fan. That way I get the cooling effect of the light color without the glare.

   This is interlux  White 4359 indoors and in sunlight it's more white than cream.

I'm actually planning on painting the hull Matterhorn which in the chart looks like a brighter white but haven't opened the can yet. Maybe next week or two.

I chose it to hide any unfairness . The brighter the color the less you'll see. So black shows everything and white not so much.
