What is our favorite raft Color?

I have some older jacks tubes that are ugly but solid. I'm thinking of urethane coating them but I'm having trouble deciding on the color. Although I can't decide, there are some color that I HATE and I'm surprised at how many of them I seen on the river. It got me thinking about overall color preferences so what is yours? You can choose more than one.

I'm surprised at the current lead being white. For those of you that have them are they difficult to keep clean? Are some materials easier to keep clean in white?

Purple! It's a rad color and you don't see it to often on the river. I think my second choice would be forest green.

My buddy has a white Sotar and he says he will never go back to any other color. I went with a custom Caribbean green and I love it- stays cool, minimum pressure change throughout the day.

Bright colors are a lot easier to see and find in a wrap.
I bought an Aire cat that is purple. It would not be my first choice, but it is not bad.

My boat is orange and I like it a lot, but I tried REALLY hard to get sotar to make me a tan SL - that would be ultimate for me. I really liked their tan color, but no go. They just wouldn't do it - I really never got a good reason why. My orange is great, not overly affected by the sun, easy to see, easily identifiable - great second choice.

I like that color a lot too, except when it was on the wall of the first house I bought... we called it "institution green" harkening back to grade school for me and hospitals for my wife.

Word of advice: don't get a black raft. I got the mini-max neo, which I love, and saved 300 bucks. It gets HOT! It's not the surface heat that is the problem (river water solves that). The problem is that heating up causes HUGE pressure changes. I keep it inflated in my garage and transport it on the roof of my truck so I have to bleed a lot of air out every time I transport it and top it off at the river in the water. Great boat and I have no regrets, but if I had to do it over again I would drop that extra 300.
