Yellow - Easiest to spot from helihopter.



Or Blue - Just looks classy.


Orange is a bit common if you ask me... lol

Ive seen a black hulled Scorpion last week under construction looked very mean, but i cant help thinking what it will look like in a couple of years when its a bit chiped and the grp shows though white.

Visibility wise Orange, orange and a bit more orange. Can't beat it!

However my new ones going to be grey tubes, black triple strakes, black hull and black topsides.

In fact the order finally went in about 5 mins ago.
