The original / traditional colour of parts of my boat is olive, but most of it is off white. I have kept it that way to maintain the tradition. It's unusual, but that's it only benefit. The rescue services wish we would paint our boats a different colour from white, blue and green as those colours blend in well with a stormy sea. There are a few racers who are brave enough to go to bright red or yellow. But it's hardly discreet.
