Must admit, Biggles boat looks pretty smart
But safety orange is the way to go
And before anyone notices, no its not "Baysnots"

My Hurricane is grey on grey, with black rub strakes and A-frame... very "Gucci" I feel. More to the point, it hides dirt well, and doesn't fade in the sun... Do you get sun over there?

Personally, I've always liked the dark blue/white color scheme. Reserved, but still looks sharp.

I'd take any colour if the F'n thing would hold air for more than 5 minutes.....

I'd normally say I like orange, but frankly at the moment I hate everything about my boat including the colour because I can see it from further away so it reminds me what a P O S it is. Choose something the same colour as your garage then it will blend in when it is broken (which will be most of the time) and you can forget about it...

If I was foolish enough to buy another one it would therefore be brown to match the stained wood on my garage.

Keep it simple!

After much deliberation / arguing / mind changing etc.. we decided on grey. Doesnt fade, easy to clean, and any accessories can add a bit of colour (no thats not catwalk talk!)
