Oh, in that case, have at it..
I was under the impression that the USCG certified actual lights... As seen in this website
USCG 2NM, COLREGS '72, ABYC A-16
Also curious as to why this document
and this document
clearly state that the USCG certifies navigation lights. If ebs001 or knothead could explain, I'd be interested to hear their explanations.
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
33 CFR Parts 84 and 183
46 CFR Part 25
Certification of Navigation Lights for Uninspected Commercial
Vessels and Recreational Vessels
AGENCY: Coast Guard, DOT.
ACTION: Final rule; delay of effective date.
SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is delaying the effective date of the final
rule on Certification of Navigation Lights for Uninspected Commercial
Vessels and Recreational Vessels published in the Federal Register on
November 1, 2001. The final rule requires domestic manufacturers of
vessels to install only certified navigation lights on all newly
manufactured uninspected commercial vessels and recreational vessels.
This rule aligns the requirements for these lights with those for
inspected commercial vessels and with requirements for all other
mandatory safety equipment carried on board all vessels. The Coast
Guard expects the resulting reduction in the use of noncompliant lights
to improve safety on the water.
EFFECTIVE DATE: The final rule is effective on November 1, 2003.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
