We carry a hand-held red/green flash light and a white flash light. The mate holds the red/green and I use the white light when ever I seen another boat or need to scan the water ahead.

We started carrying the red/green light when I got stopped by the CG in Rockland (ME) harbor one night last year. At the time we had only a flashlight and they nicely informed us that we were illegal, but took no further action. They asked to see our floatation devices (cushions) but said nothing about sound devices or fire extinguishers.

Good luck with the plea! My guess is the turkeys that pulled you over won't show up in court.
