We haven't had a heat problem with Hibou's dark green hull. But then again we're in Seattle so getting her warm is the real issue.
The boat we are restoring to take to the tropics also has a dark green hull and lots of opening ports.

If you have an older FEY Mariner or H28 w/ a wood hull, dark hull paint would not be good for the calking seams. The added heat gain tends to dry out the seam compound at an accelerated rate. With fiberglass hulls it is more of a comfort issued and depends on where one plans on sailing.
