Re: Boat paint, and color.

If you look at the pictures in the gallery here, you'll see that most of the boats are white, except for bottom paint. If you're talking about bottom paint, rather than hull paint (as I suspect may be the case based on your first question), you typically want a contrasting color for the bottom paint so you can easily tell when it has worn off and needs to be reapplied. You don't HAVE to scrape the old paint off every year. The longevity of each coat will be based on where you keep the boat and how often you use it.
