Default Paint ideas for new hatch scoops?

Hey guys, I'm looking for some paint scheme ideas for my new hatch scoops. I've kicked around all sorts of ideas and can't decide. Solid red? Red, orange & yellow fade? Yellow at the opening that fades to red? I can't get my paint brush on Microsoft Works to work right to bring anything to life. I'll attach some pictures of the boat and hatch scoops to help form some ideas. Would sure appreciate any ideas. Thanks

what is the top of your hatch like?
Solid white?
Mine is blue and white diamond shape and the scoops follow that.
First one shows the top side.
the other two show different angles to it.
I personally like the all white just because it is another thing to polish.
you need to remember anyone and everyone that goes across your hatch will touch these. Scratches are going to happen

Hatch re-covered in all white. And yes any darker or richer color will show scuffs and scratches. I'd still like something other than all white.
