While conducting vessel safety checks at a local county lake. I discovered this very unique nav light configuration on a pontoon boat. If you look close at the pictures you can see that his port and starboard sidelights are solar powered yard lights with red and green colored cellophane inside the lens. I gave the boater kudos for ingenuity but Unfortunately had to fail his VSC. the lights did not have the correct arc of vid ability and since they were solar they were on whenever the sun was down reguardless if the vessel was underway or not.
