Hunter Orange
Signal Yellow
Even better day glo!
There is a reason why these names were choose!
I personally know of 4 KBHFs lost at sea, even searched with boat some time later, none were painted with colors above....

When it gets dark your color vision goes south, and everything becomes gray. Your board better be equipped with strobe light.

Also, if only 20% of the board painted red, then it is 5 times less effective.
