OK ok - while I would ideally like a raw red rib, I think the fading could be an issue. How about a red hull with neptune grey tubes?

Surely the best option is to look around to see a real-life combination in the flesh (that you like) and suits you're needs (including consul hull and seating options) and just copy it or be highly influenced by it....maybe adding or subtracting things that you prefer.

IMO A lot less fraught and potentially upsetting than picking colour combinations out of the air that may or may not give you the result you looking for when it's too late ie built..and paid for!
It's all been done before,and unless you want something "really off the wall" or to just throw the Dice!...with all the resale implications ect..it must be the way to go no?

the colour scheme is important cos if you make a mistake you are stuck with it.

Fender , you did not say what the colour was of the GRP cos if white then easy to replace the tube with a more suitable one. If one has the same colour GRP and tube no need to replace and it will sell.

we as a company favour Military Grey and somebody once said you can have any colour from Parker as long as it is Military Grey - just like Henry Ford once said about his cars - as long as it is black

There are many Parker Seasafari ribs in Military Grey some operating since 2005. The one in Grenada since 2007 .

if one wants the Wow factor the one cannot go wrong with RED, YELLOW, MILITARY GREY. the first two are prone to fade but if looked after they will have a long life span

here are some photos

I am sure some of you remember Nauti Bouy especially the famous crossing from Calais to Dover

the first photo was taken in 2007 or early 2008 when Richard started his operation.

the second photo was taken by me last year in Alderney. You can see that the tubes have faded and it is my guess not a lot of TLC. The colour of the GRP looks good.

the other yellow Parker 1000 Baltic with T-top is Waverider in the Canary Islands. year of built 2010 and as new had twin Mercury Verado 350 HP engines. Sold in December 2011. I have posted a photo as the rib is being shrink wrapped and you can see have the colour had been brought back. Today she still looks good and in the Canary Islands there is perhaps the same quantity of sun like in the Bahamas.

The all red Parker 1000 Baltic was built in 2012 and for the first two years operated from Southampton and had a full cover when stored on the hard. The photo was taken in June 2014. Today this rib is operating from St. David's South Wales and is known as Ocean Raven. The T-top was removed and sold to a forum member

not many ribs around here to compare to unfortunately, short of yacht tenders which are always white.

such a decision! While I want to minimize fading I also want to keep the uniqueness of the boat.

.....If that's the case "Google" and "You tube"..( no pun intended ) are your friends!
Either way I'd not commit till your pretty satisfied and Happy with you're choices.
