Here is a geek fest story to have some fun with, or not, possibly some big gun will chime in and make a definite answer. It does make sense to be either color, and we certainly have seen enough of them in the blue color. But is that correct? Well. See below.
That’s right, on Plaidtastic the Plaid Rocket at Katzs Marina, while working in the rare green bilge, they noticed that the paint on the Lead wedges was… you guessed it, bilge green, and that makes sense as well. But is it? Is this something that happened post war, and pre war it was another thing. Was a blue wedge odd looking against the green? And in this case it was painted Bilge Green? So many questions. It does make sense to have them in the bilge and paint it all. but does it really matter? I mean the comment section is the real answer… right? Was bacon the original inspiration for bilge color? mmmmm think about it. Readers want to know!
