Dennis: Have you got a PFD strobe or light handy? Tape it to the  
orange fender you have and put a weight on the bottom to keep the  
light up.

Couple weeks ago we were anchored in a crowded, busy anchorage.  There  
are PWC and catamaran rental concessions nearby so there were a lot of  
inexperienced boaters around.

I had a small red float (4-5 inch long) on a line attached to my  
anchor rode with a springhook.  An idiot in a pontoon boat actually  
straddled my anchor rode marker!  I now have one of those orange round  
15" Taylor Made fenders for marking my rode.  It will double as a  
fender when needed.

We are planning to anchor in that same anchorage to watch the  
fireworks on the Fourth of July.  Having done it last year, I expect  
there will be more idiots and more boat drivers under the influence  
that evening/night.  I would like to mark my rode with some sort of  
floating light.  I saw some of the lights show below at a discount  
store for $10 US Saturday.


Anybody seen any better options?
