Manually powered vessels are boats that are paddled, poled, or rowed.
- If less than 23.0 feet long, these vessels should exhibit a white light visible for 360° around the horizon and visible from a distance of at least one mile away if operating on:
- Natural lakes
- Corps of Engineers impoundments
- Border rivers
- Impoundments on inland rivers
- If this light is partially obscured due to the nature of the vessel, an additional white light must be on hand to be shown in sufficient time to prevent a collision.
