Mixed green / yellow - how could such a beautiful color combination be overlooked.

AND

I've added Wood :)

Cheers, Mental
Ok, so you were able to add 'Wood' - what was the problem where you couldn't add 'Orange/Red'?
There is no yellow on my yak - so didn't vote as it would have given an incorrect poll result.

Orange/white, orange for safety and white for Texas heat, it often get up to 108F here on the Gulf coast, so hot in fact, that a block of ice will catch fire! :lol:

I had wondered if a silvery Blue bottom for commo so the fish can't see it as well, with a Orange Top for watersafey would work. What da ya Guys And Girls think?

Mate have a look at your hull next time your diving.
Mines bright yellow on the bottom too, but from anything more than about 5m below I just about loose it by sight due to the bright light of the water surface, and the realitively small footprint of a yak.
(Or maybe its just because im half blind :P )

I have and it looks like a big Orange Shark when I'm @ 15-30ft (5-10m). I'm pretty sure the fish notice it. A small tinny would show up less. But as lest I don't make much unnatural noise paddling.

I think it would work, if it could be done, but the way they make SOT kayaks , I don't know if it can be done. Can some one comment ?
