LET THERE BE LIGHT

Summer evenings in crowded anchorages or mooring fields are part and parcel of the coastal cruising life, and there is always some activity after dark as stragglers arrive or cruisers run to shore and back in their dinghies. It’s only common sense (and also the law) to have the proper lights on your tender to give other boats plenty of warning and prevent yourself from being run down. The Navisafe SUP, Dinghy and Kayak Pack comprises a tricolor light and an all-round white light, each with a two-mile range. The lights can be mounted to an inflatable’s tube or to the top of an outboard motor—and you can also transfer them to your kayak or SUP. What’s more, the suction mounts can also accept a GoPro camera, making them useful in the daytime too. $179.99. Navisafe, navisafe.com
