We carry a hand-held red/green flash light and a white flash light. The mate holds the red/green and I use the white light when ever I seen another boat or need to scan the water ahead.

We started carrying the red/green light when I got stopped by the CG in Rockland (ME) harbor one night last year. At the time we had only a flashlight and they nicely informed us that we were illegal, but took no further action. They asked to see our floatation devices (cushions) but said nothing about sound devices or fire extinguishers.

Good luck with the plea! My guess is the turkeys that pulled you over won't show up in court.

I'm glad that you guys don't think I'm overreacting.

The NH code is here: saf-c400

They do actually require a fire extinguisher on every motor boat. Pretty silly. Fire extinguisher or not, if my Zodiac caught fire, I'd sooner jump in the drink than try to put it out!

You are floating in your fire extinguisher! Capsize the dinghy and I guarantee the fire will go out!

You know what really burns me...

You spend hundreds of $$ on these freaking iflatables....and they are sofa king stupid they don't think about a bow light.

How hard would it be to design a holder for those flashlight like lights or a built in bow light (LED) that used batteries.

Ridiculous!!!!!!

unless it's the fuel that is on fire, then you're swimming in your fire. That's why type b extinguishers are required, because water is not appropriate for extinguishing flammable liquids.

I guess that's why they make the suction cup and glue on mount lights

Forget the court date..

Forget the court date and call the court. Schedule an appointment with the prosecutor and present the laws. If they are reasonable they will throw it out before it ever gets to court..

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.

Agreed. Worst they can say is "No, you must show up in court".

Nope, make the idiots show up in court and defend their actions to the judge. Judges don't like stupid cops anymore than you do!
