Lights Required for Manually Powered Vessels When Underway
All manually powered vessels should (does not include sailboats):
- Exhibit the same lights as required for unpowered vessels less than 65 feet in length, or
- If navigation lights are not practical, have on hand at least one lantern or flashlight shining a white light to display in time to prevent a collision (Figure 3).
To prevent a collision, vessel operators should never leave shore without a flashlight. Even if you plan to return before dark, unforeseen developments might delay your return past nightfall.
