I understand the requirements for boat running lights at night,,,,,,,,, but, are there any restrictions on running with "dock" lights or high powered spot lights?

I think as long as your running lights are visible you are okay, too bright and you might get a ticket.

I can't find the link but in a boating forum I read it was discussed that you could be ticketed for causing a distraction to other boaters. Not sure what the exact law states.

They also kept bagging on hillbilly's in pontoons for doing this. Being a hillbilly that drives a pontoon.........I resemble that remark smile

We were watching the fireworks on Grapevine July 4th. I noticed three pontoons headed our way with their docking lights on. I commented to my wife that those lights make their boats visible but make it impossible to see any boats between us and them with normal running lights on. Based on that, I determined it wasn't a good idea to run with you docking lights on. Just my $.02.

Found it - Mods, not sure if it's cool to post a link to another forum or not. If you need to delete this post feel free just sharing what I referenced above:
