Took my 2nd shake down cruise. Ran to the Wantagh 2 and back. In the 5 mph zone of nicks point I see the CG short beach inflatable hauling ass tru the marsh coming from the meadowbrook side. He's flying … cuts across by nicks point guess who they pull over??? Me. Boater safety check. The guys were nice as heck. I asked to be boarded at my marina .They said no problem. They went tru everything … a few discussions about my strobe that takes the place of flares. They say their not compliant. The label on it clearly says CG approved. Another discussion about my throw ring being in the cabin. I explained and showed the boats still in boxes. and it usually sits behind my seat with a line attached. Some other small issue I won't discuss . But again really nice guys . They have a job to do I get it . I did bring up their barreling tru the no wake zone .. Their response was funny .. IS the no wake zone federal or state they asked? I said town... they laughed and said yea that's not for us...They only enforce federal laws nothing state or county. Didn't know that.

Anyway the big take away was FLARES, THROWABLE DEVICES, overboard discharge valve closed and ziptied, fire extinguishers and life jackets.

Have a great summer guys !

Town of Brookhaven stopped my boat while it was undergoing a sea trial with prospective buyers. It was the only boat out there and the harbormaster was bored. My broker got chastised for going too fast near an empty barge mooring.

I have also heard of the issue with the strobes. Compliant vs Approved.
I am thinking most people purchased them based on an assumption, self included.

If you look carefully flares are listed as day/ night signals. When the strobes came out they were sold with a flag to meet the day portion of the rule.

Talk about false advertising!

The SOS Distress Light meets USCG night visual distress signal requirements for navigation on coastal waters, the Great Lakes, territorial seas and connected waters up to a point where less than two miles across for recreational boats over 16ft, or smaller boats operating between sunset and sunrise.

When activated the SOS Distress Light flashes the Internationally recognized Morse Code SOS sequence of "... --- ...". This light DOES NOT emit a solid beam, its purpose is to meet The USCG regulations for night visual distress signaling as required for Commercial Fishing vessels operating in the area designated "coastal".

I was the only boat out there Bruce... And they should abide by all laws... but im not pressing it ..

They said the stobe to the best of their knowledge was no longer a replacement for flares. The guys I had were 10 and 15 yr guys, So they knew their stuff but they said it was a gray area as it does say CG approved. Very odd that it would be approved and then rescinded... They past me so im good for the year. ill ask the Guys out east when I get the Sticker for the Riverhead Marine police.

I have the strobe as well. Was that question resolved? My understanding is that flares are not required if you have the strobe.

They may only enforce federal law but does that mean they can violate local laws?

You were probably the only boat out there and they needed something to do.
