I prefer Amber 2 but I find that green works well on real bright sunshiny days.

I also like Amber 2 for most on the water SI imaging.  If you use HumViewer to review your recordings, you have the ability to switch between several
color choices. Makes it easier to see the advantages/disadvantages of the different colors.

everybody's eyes will adjust differently to different colors...

me personally, brown gives me the best detail (like this color at the helm

blue gives me the best contrast... brighter days and at the bow i use this

I will give Amber 2 another vote.  I use it most of the time when in the boat.   When checking some shots with HumViewer, I seem to find that blue gives the best contrast.

Fun part is telling somebody that the amber shows the water is muddy, and then switching to blue when they aren't looking and then saying the water is a lot cleaner now. >:D
