Re: Anchor light
USCG approved means it has been tested and meets the visibility distance requirement. if it is not an approved type then you can not prove it does meet the requirement. someone hits you and the lawyers find out you will be liable
If you're hit by a commercial vessel or even a big powerboat running at night the lawyers may be the least of your worries.
Doesn't seem like a good place to save a dollar. Just sayin...
