Re: Black or off coloured Yachts? Opinions......,

In the world of generic bleach bottle white plastic boats, some kind of distinguishing feature can indeed be helpful in crowded anchorages. (I'm reminded of an overindulging friend at Antigua race week, he asked the launch for a ride to his boat.. when asked 'which boat' he replied 'the white one'....)

We've seen the top few feet of a mast painted a contrasting colour - it's quite helpful. But unless you're at a Norsea 27 rendezvous I can't see you having any trouble picking out your boat!!
