Can navigation lights mounted on my own watercraft impair my night vision? (continued)
It is extremely important when considering your navigation lights for night paddling and boating to ensure that light from your own equipment is prevented from being directed, reflected or refracted into your eyes — especially while you are under way. Our design and testing of early Kayalite prototypes helped us develop an optimal height for a kayak light that would reduce or eliminate the possibility of rays of light from illuminating the paddle and forward deck of a kayak while maximizing visibility of the kayak as viewed from other vessels.
In some circumstances it is important to be able to turn off your navigation lighting momentarily in order to improve your night vision. For this reason, we recommend mounting a Kayalite within reach.Click here
