I choose these colors for the psychological factor that they are calm colors and hopefully will encourage the reader to take their time with the info and enjoy the site.

The colors for the logo should either complement or contrast with the site colors. One is considering either crossed torpedos or some sort of submarine related insignia, badge or medal.
