Please record the conversation. I'm going to really like hearing it. "Oh, you actually want to operate our boat in water, at night?"

|RAGTIMEDON||DON'T ROCK THE BOAT!!!!! You know that if Avon adds a 45 dollar nav light they will raise the price 150 and the west manure version will go up 200!|

An interesting observation...
My boat is under 7m and my motor pushes it at maybe 5 kts, so I can use an all around while motoring unless under state jurisdiction. Then if I use the sails or scull to move silently I can just use a flashlight as needed, but if I crank up the motor, which provides an audible cue that I am moving about, I have to have proper nav lights. I think the narrow part of the Pamlico, which is fast becoming my favorite haunt, is subject to state regs. I was planning to get lights anyway, but its an interesting note.

To clarify what I was originally trying to say...
I think it is pathetic and unacceptable that these inflatable manufactures, especially one like Avon, do not have the forward thinking to add a useful and proper navigation light support/bracket or a light itself!!!!
I am about to write Avon and tell them just what I think about their inability to even offer it as a option. They could easily, for a small percentage of what the boat cost to build, add either a attachment point for one of those lights like above, or they could install a bow light right on the thing with the ability to easily change out the batteries.
Do they think people don't operate these at night???????? Screw the rules...I want to be seem and identified by others (even if I have joked otherwise in other threads) with a red/green bow light and white all around at the stern that looks like more than an afterthought POS.
Okay, back to regular programming

|labatt||Still no responses with a better solution than epoxying on something to the front of the inflatable? We're looking for a solution too...|
