View Full Version : Tower Lights- Legal or Not

We are looking at a used X-Star and it had 2 lights in the speaker cans pointed forward and it had 4 lights pointed backwards. The dealer said it was only legal now to have 4 lights total on a tower now. Has anyone heard about a law like this now ?

In Cal it is illeagal to run at night (5 mph), let alone board or ski.

AFAIK, not a USCG regulation, but individual states might impose something like that. Not the case in this state. We can ski or hydrofoil for 1 hour after sunset, and we hydrofoil or wakeboard under the 4 backward-pointing lights on my buddy's X-10 all the time.

I think it all depends on where you live. They look so cool why do they need to be illegal. Pontoon boats have those headlight things why can't we have our fun.

Anybody know the rules for PA?
