Empress Of Scotland Lifeboats?

Hi folks,
I'm looking for a little information. On the very few colour photo's that I have seen, the Empress Of Scotland seems to have very dark (near black) lifeboats.

I am a little confuddled by this. Are lifeboats to a safety standard of light/white colour, so as to be spotted easy? I'm probably stating the obvious, but the dark colour of Empress Of Scotland lifeboats seems odd.

Or, is there another straight forward answer?

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.
