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 #.http://www.boatus.org/findings/48/
