This may seem a dumb question but I have to bring it up yet again. (I'm hoping this is not a banned discussion....?? not sure)
I'm sure it's been debated but, why in God's name are LED lighting strips (red / green) considered illegal and not in compliance with US Coast Guard requirements ?
They are so much brighter that the old and much out dated light pole that plugs in a hole on the bow
I know this is a very controversial subject but, mine have now ( I just discovered ) gone out and I wanted to replace them with a better quality LED strip set but I was advised to go back to the little plug in pole with the old red/green standard lights. ?????
JMO, but this seems insane after having seen my rig and MANY others with the new and brighter strip lights....????
Is this just me ??? If so, what about all the others I have seen with them installed...?????
Now we are supposed to rip them off the boat.....
How are ya'll dealing with this....
