Re: Lighting ...

A powerful hand-held spotlight, shined on your boat's sails or swept quickly back and forth in the general direction of an on-coming ship (NOT shined steadily in anyones eyes) will get just about anyones attention. Xenon strobes are technically a no-no, except in an emergency. However, I seriously doubt that using one as a last resort to get a BMFS's attention would get you in trouble.
