Maybe a camo boat is nice if you're duck hunting. Ducks see things from the air looking down. A big white or yellow kayak would stick out like a sore thumb. However when you're fishing, the bottom of the boat is shadow to the fish. They are underneath looking up. Between the fish and the sun is the top of the boat. So the bottom just basically looks like an area of dark surrounded by an area of light regardless of the color of the plastic.

Forget about camo boats for fishing. They're not safe if there are other boaters around and the color doesn't provide any help in catching fish. Get yellow or orange or bright green or white or something that can be seen.
