  You have to look at it.

I think looking at it all day is enough reason for me to never own a red or orange boat. You didn't say plastic or glass - I assume plastic since you said "softening"?

Years back a visibility study was done with ocean kayaks and white showed up the best. But now they have that flocesent green on apparel but who knows. Your happiness in the kayak counts like wearing clothing you are happy being in. I never read anything positive or negative regarding colors other than dark might absorb more heat. But for river kayaking I doubt it matters.

Personally I want to have I boat I like to look at on and off the water. Marketing studies show that the most disliked color generally is orange. No wonder Howard Johnson's failed with their orange logo.
