Went thru the book and there are very few photos of the boats. In none of the boat pictures are they painted white. The launches and smaller boats are the same color as the hull. The motor boats look to be either black or dark blue with white or light grey wheel houses. The interior of the oared boats look white with wood seats and floor grates. In quite a few photos the complete upper portion of the boats are covered in a light colored canvas, and in many wartime shots, there are no boats except whalers on davits, workboats?

Hi Dan. Thanks for your invaluable help. We don't have those paints you mentioned, here in Australia. In the end I went with Tamiya spray TS32, Haze Grey. It's a medium grey, slightly blue-grey (to me anyway). It's probably not the right colour but its the best I could find to compromise with.

I'll follow your assumptions for the boats. So, mostly grey hulls with white and brown interiors. I'll experiment a little with the two motorboats. Many thanks. :thumbs_up_1:
