Anchored vessel lights

All vessels are required to display a white light visible in all directions whenever they are moored or anchored outside a designated mooring area between sunset and sunrise. Vessels less than 23.0 feet (7 meters) long are exempt from this requirement unless anchored in or near a narrow channel, fairway, or anchorage, or where other vessels normally navigate.
