the rnli conducted tests in the 90's using yellow paint on the then prototype trent and severn class lifeboats, but decided that orange was better for visibility so stuck with it

When diving, an orange SMB sticks out a mile, but the yellow ones are harder to spot if there's any white water at all, which brings us back to Willk's point

What tubes do you think he would put on? Probably a couple of blow up camp beds held on with a ratchet strap!! But at least it would all be sprayed the same colour
