Red and green navigation lights that are not led strip lights. These lights are so easy to install it's amazing. $24 shipped to your door. PayPal and credit cards accepted. Lifetime warranty and free shipping!

I have a question.

Since sidelights are red (port) and green (starboard) and required to shine from dead ahead to 112.5° aft on either side, how do your lights meet this requirement? Have your lights been approved by the USCG?

Navigation lights have to be “approved”. Some manufacturers are selling navigation lights that don’t meet regulations. These lights are typically cheaper, but do not provide the proper color quality, brightness or cut-off angles that boaters rely on to avoid collision. So how do you know you are buying a good nav light? The US Coast Guard (USCG) says things to look for include 1.) USCG approval, 2.) The rated visibility of the light in nautical miles, 3.) Meets ABYC A-16, 4.) “Tested by: laboratory name,” along with 5.) Manufacturer and model #.

Capt Craig. Thanks for your question and your obvious knowledge of navigation lights.

Let me answer you this way. My manufacturer also manufactures lights for some of the boat manufacturers that are being installed in the new boats and using all the same material. Secondly, the lights in the pictures are at an angle not pointed straight to the front yet you can see them head on. These lights have a 170° viewable angle. Thirdly, brightness exceeds Coast Guard standards. Compared to most lights on existing boats, these lights are so much brighter there is no comparison!

If someone orders these lights and gets a ticket while lights are in use, I will pay it, unless you go up to a game warden or Coast Guard and say "hey, write me a ticket because some idiot said he would pay it".
