CHAPTER 2: Boating Equipment
NAVIGATION LIGHTS AT ANCHOR
We’ve covered what navigation lights you need to have when you are underway, but what about when you’re at anchor?
When your boat is at anchor, but you are not in a designated anchoring area, like at a marina, you need to make sure that you are visible to other boats that may be operating nearby.
When anchoring in these areas, you are required to display an all-around white light where it will be best seen by any other boats in the area.
