This is correct. Technically the navigation lights have to be seen from a certain broad angle and brightness.. most are probably bright enough.. it's just how much you want to push it. The GW could ticket if they wanted to on it.

I've had LED strips on my console and they've eventually lost diodes.. The lights and the wiring would have to be completely encased and sealed otherwise the moisture, condensation, and salt fog will eventually win. Get some good quality true navigation lights that are sealed LED and have covers.

Taco says their rub tail nav lights are coastguard compliant.

Make of those what you will...

Bottom line, USCG says navigation lights have to be tested and certified, and the testing date, pertinent regulations, and certifying agency should be listed on the packaging.

Even if the lights meet all the technical requirements, they have to be tested and certified by an approved lab before they're legal. That's expensive.

Lots of us get away with uncertified lights for years. Until we run into the wrong warden or USCG officer. Or the insurance company looks for a reason not to pay out a claim.

I assume the "shark eye" style lights below the rubrail are legal? they were installed by the factory on my Shearwater and I have not had any issues with the law yet.

Bow'd-Up is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
I think the claims of these such lights meeting USCG regs, are referring only to the range of visibility requirements. I don't see how they can possibly meet the arcs of visibility requirements. The arcs of visibility of the lights is what allows you to determine the direction/orientation/angle of a vessel at night.

Those lights are what came from the factory on my 24' SeaBorn.

I run the Taco’s on my boat and they definitely fall in the visible spectrum. They have a precise mounting location included in the instructions.
