They sold him the Chesapeake version... the real bluewater version has the nav lights and a battery box as part of the kit.

Apparently the manufacturers didn't think anybody was actually going to use them. When you bought this boat, did you ask for the marine version?

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.

Last time it came off I glued that rubber mount back onto the boat using a super glue "Gel", so far it's held for a couple years but I always expect it to fall off again.

The New England version comes with a heater, windshield, enclosed inflatable cabin, ice-breaking bow, special Ice-chopping prop and free insurance that you can use for "All 90 Days" of the season.




"Chesapeake Version" indeed....

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

MANY states require ALL powered vessels to have nav lights in inland waters.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

From memory and I could be mistaken the 7 knot limit is for boats not capable of exceeding it not operating under it.

You are correct:

If your power-driven vessel is less than 23 feet/7 meters in length and its maximum speed cannot exceed 7 knots, then it may display an all-round white light, and if practicable, sidelights instead of the lights prescribed previously. (For International Rules only)

How you can be sure of that, I don't know.
