Love the colour, at least if the brown stuff hits the fan it gives the rescue services a fighting chance to find it

Yellow is actually a difficult colour to spot when it's rough, orange stands out much better.

I can see I to that yard from my house, no idea there was a rib stored there! If anyone wants me to look it over happy to wander round.

I would agree from a boat, but from the air either yellow or orange stand out really well.
Colour is purely a personal choice but the RIB that is for sale appears to be in really good condition (from the photos).

My choice for colour had to be something that stood out in case I was waiting to be rescued (I have always preferred to be a live coward than a dead hero), because at the time most RIBs were orange I did not want 'another orange RIB'.
I had a grey SR4 which was magic but the tubes had to be constantly monitored in sunny weather, but grey I think out of all the colours keeps the best.
The thought of a white boat and me - no we won't even go there (it would end up looking like Steptoe's undies). My other train of thought was if some lowlife did actually steal my RIB it would stand out like a sore thumb!
