Re: Rhumb line between Key West and Galveston, TX

Why are some of these rigs unlit? Is there no reg that requires that they be lighted? Seems it would be fairly easy to do with low power solar charged systems with LEDs. Are there no regs that require that they be lighted since they are hazards to navigation? Are they inactive unmanned rigs that have been abandoned and have no "owner?" With all the $$$ that our Fed "employees" spend on outlandish crap seems that we should give this a higher priority.
