So I know that many folks are putting deck lights on their boats. I gave some thought to doing this as well, but have a question. Obviously red is the best color from a functionality standpoint. It doesn't affect scotopic vision, and bugs aren't attracted which is important as well. My question is, is this a safety hazard as this is a navigation light color? Are there legal implications to this? I hadn't seen anything about that on the internet anywhere. Thoughts?

I recall hearing about people getting tickets or warnings about having colored lights on while being anchored up. Been a while though since I've read a post about it.

I think I'd call your local game wardens, as in several of them to get their definitions.
