Default Color of a New Outboard

So hypothetically if you had the chance to pick out the color of a new outboard from a new OEM manufacture what color would you choose?

I know the big manufactures use the ones below:
Merc - Black but interpid has painted a few new ones white
Yamaha-Silver four strokes and Black two strokes
Honda - Silver
Evenrude- White
Suzuki- Dark Metalic Grey

Is there any other color that you think would look good on a boat as a standard color?

Thanks
Don

I have seen that boat. It looks really good. I know you can have them custom painted, but what I am looking for is what does everyone think is the best color for a new OEM outboard, single color.

Thanks

Sea Foam Green if single. Light blue and red (one each) if twin, if triple add a yellow one. Just for those into the "rainbow".

Otherwise.....White

Best Color you could have - matching

But If I had to pick from your choices I would say Merc - Black. Not for the color though- for the brand. I would never pick a product just because the packaging/paint lookes good.

I am not talking about brand. I am saying if a new company came up with a new outboard what color would you like to see?

White for Consoles- to match every other boat that has been made.

Black for bassboats.
