The colour of your boat.

Post by Bikeboy » Mon Jul 09, 2018 9:21 pm

Am new to this. Just bought myself a Dragon Force 65, am happy with the performance, the problem i am having is seeing it in certain positions, it' a black hull, and i think thats where the problems lies. what is the easiest colour to see on the water, i have some pink paint in a rattle can, am going to spray the sides of the hull, Is there a better colour?
Cheers Del.

Dayglow Yellow
or
Dayglow Orange

like a Hi Vis jacket should be easy to pick out and quite distinctive

or
Yellow on Blue was chosen by the USAF and US Coastguard.

or how about a 100 mm Wide Vertical strip in Red on the black in the middle - Use Solar Film rather than paint ..its easier
