Mark – you are right. If this is a commercial vessel then there might be local regs or codes that have to be adhered to. The colours I mentioned are simply the most common I can remember seeing. I have seen some that use stripes to distinguish feed pipes and overboard pipes.

It might be better to make up your own, if you are not bound by any regs, so you would remember it in an emergency situation. For a private vessel use of standard colours and a chart to relate colour to contents would be more applicable.
