LED speaker lights

caught a radio show last sunday that was interviewing a TPWD officer who says that boaters with speaker lights or tower lights will start getting warnings that their lights are in violation of Coast Guard regulations.

TWPD dude stated that when a boat is underway or under anchor, the only lights that are legal above water are red, green, and white nav lights. Blue lights are reserved for law enforcement on Texas waterways.

Under water doesn't matter what's going on, only above water

Anyone get any grief else where regarding exterior lights?

Think it's also visible from outside the boat. Tower speakers would be an issue, but interior lighting would not be. Every boat out there comes with interior lights.
