Wat color what color

I am trying to talk my dad into getting a boat for the "family buisness" and if I get the boat it will probably be a Leopard cat blue, white, red, glow-in-the-dark, green, teal. It would be helpfull for my decision if I get feed back.

The traditional white is just so time tested it can't be wrong. Be aware that colors do fade and green fades quicker than blue. In warm climates the dark hull could be a curse.

Don't fear! You can still add artwork. The new systems for applying artwork means almost anything can be done in artwork. If you want to be distinctive I would add artwork and just stick to white for the hull color.
