My 14SL will arrive in March. I went with red body & floor, black frame chafe, black d-rings. Since I'll never use this as a paddle raft, I figured the black frame chafe wasn't a big deal.
Thanks, cataraftgirl. That boat was my inspiration for the layout on that first pic. I know I want at least the bow and stern to be as bright colored as possible. I want them to be like a bright flag that says, "jet boaters, there's someone else on the river. You might need to think ahead!"
If I use any black, I think I'll just keep it to a minimum. This will be a fishing boat but also a family boat. I want my kids to be comfortable in it. I was also thinking about the 3 boats that I have spent the most time in. Two are light blue and one is dark green. It does seem like the dark green one needs more attention to the air pressure.
