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!
