Favourite RIB colours

Ok what would be your choice for hull and tube colours?
The white hull and blue tube combo seems popular these days. Is white the best hull colour? Scratches won't show up as easily on white, is it a bu**er to keep clean?. Personally I like the look of black hull/yellow tubes but how would a black hull stand up to sratches? Still nowt wrong with orange on orange though, very visible.

Me I would like pure orange hull and tubes with black fendering and tube wear pads.

Orange inside and and fittings.

Orange hull, Grey or orange toobs, black strakes.

If it looks industrial to begin with, the scratches will look like they're meant to be there!

I went for all yellow (hull, interior and tubes) with grey trim and upholstry. Looked good and I reckoned easy for SAR Helos to see, even when inverted!!

I got a bit scared then - read your occupation and town the wrong way round and thought your occupation was 'Assassin', which would explain the colour choice !
