Given the Texas heat the last few weeks, we've done more and more evening sailing; usually getting back to dock well after dark. I'm developing a new pet peeve about the larger power boats with car-like headlights, that keep them on all the time. I am routinely dazzled by these, with requisite loss of night vision.
But worse is, I can't imagine they have much chance of seeing my running lights with the backscatter from their big flame throwers--or have any night vision to speak of themselves.
Are there any regulations on the use of spotlights or headlights underway, outside of the normal navigation light rules?
