Navigation light (red/green) question
Im thinking about doing something a little different on my boat. I have a hardtop on my 20' skippy and I was wondering if it would be coast guard legal to use LED strip lighting to wrap around the top, with the red and green in the corners, and white around the rest of the top, as one big loop of light. Ive got the parts, I just want to know if it would pass muster, or if anyone knows who I could ask to be sure.

Heres a little info on nav light rules. As long as you meet the requirements of visibility its legal.

Not sayin you can't do it but it won't be legal. If your ever have an accident it likely will add to your responsibilty in causing the accident.

That's a negative for sure unless the strip lights are specifically made for navigation purposes, which they aren't. Cool idea though!
There is nothing more critical to night time safety than properly working running lights with the correct specs.the early bird get's the worm, the second mouse get's the cheese

Only if you also put 24" Spinners on the trailer wheels.

Keep in mind the potential for the white light to cover the ability to see the red / green.

I think this is what you are after.. This is a regulator 26FS that was listed on THT. When I saw the hard top, I thought of this thread. You might give regulator a call to see if they can supply the lights or provide more info. This looks really clean in my opinion!
