Re: Color of life rings in camo scheme
Normally the life rings were painted to match the surrounding Camo Scheme. But, many of the life rings were mounted out of view on the "INSIDE" of bulwarks, so may have been left a natural canvas color. The odd thing, is that the fire fighting water hoses (also used to wash down the decks, etc) when brand-new were noticeably "light" color. But, with use they got dirtier and dirtier.
I have noticed on at least the USCG boats intended as rescue vessels, that sometimes their life rings had brighter stripes to make spotting easier.
This question has most likely been answered before but I don't recall what is was.
Were life rings painted to match the colors of the camo scheme or where they painted white or red?
Specifically I am asking for a Measure 21 scheme.
