Am noodling over the idea of ordering a Placid Boat Works pack canoe, for short outings on slow rivers or calm ponds. And I would probably go with one of the standard colors (all are of a chromatic spectrum; no white offered).
This could be a really dumb question, but, heck, I am an outsider – very unfamiliar with the paddling ethos. So, here goes: What color hull should I opt for?
My experience with marine fiberglass boats always says go with white. It does not fade; scrapes and gouges remain whitish and easy to fill with white. But this is a different world I am trying to learn about. So, I appeal to knowledgeable and experienced paddlers here.
