LOL! Yeah, well - at least it's worked for me...

I deal with this a lot, primarily in Florida... Usually on moderately-sized Sea Rays and the like, with remote control searchlights mounted on the bow...

Shining a light back at them until they turn off or avert their own never fails to produce the desired result... They may turn it back on fulltime as soon as they pass me, but it is extremely rare that I ever get lit up a second time...
