In my experience most aerial searches usually take place from sunlight to sundown and louder colors like orange, red (like bouys), yellow, lime green, pink are much more visible to search helicopter/airplane rescue crews. Olive green and dune/sand colors are not highly visible from a searching aircraft even flying at low altitudes. Just a consideration request for Hobie for 2014. I'm very curious and definitely not CEO material but do any Hobie higher ups know if adding other colors would raise production costs and lower sale profits?
Please bring back the Hobie Orange for Outback and PA!!!!!
I'm wanting to buy a new PA, but I don't want color dupes. I already have blue, 2 yellows, a green, and olive kayak. I'm not big on the red colors, but the old orange would be awesome!!!!!
