  • Patent number: 6231217
    Abstract: A lighting system for a watercraft which provides a visual indication of the watercraft at a distance during darkness or other inclement conditions. The lighting system comprises a light source or a plurality of light sources which are directed to directly illuminate the hull of the watercraft such that a distinct portion or portions of the hull is directly illuminated and visually identifiable at a distance. Preferably, the port side of the hull is directly illuminated by a red light, the starboard side of the hull is illuminated green and the stern portion of the hull is illuminated yellow so that one observing the watercraft can determine the correct orientation of the watercraft relative to the observer's position. The light source which directly illuminates the hull of the watercraft is also designed to intermittently flash or strobe based upon the movement of the watercraft, or lack thereof.
