USCG - electronic charts & pubs
Sirius Signal company has produced a non-pyrotechnic device that can replace the night time requirement to carry flares. The SOS Distress Light (A-1001) is approved by Auxiliary National Response Department and District 7 OTO for use on operational facilities (OPFAC).
Reference: Coast Guard Compliant number 46CFR 161.013
The SOS Distress Light can replace flares for night time requirements, however you will have to carry a day emergency flag to satisfy the day requirement for our OPFACs. Included with the Sirius Signal SOS light purchase is a day emergency flag. (Amazon prices the light at $99.00)
This is not a product endorsement. It is an option for your consideration instead of using flares.
