I dont think you are required but its best for your safty to have at least a head lamp. I run 2 light on my tube.

i use the red light setting on my head lamp and then I have multi color flashing light on a raised pole mounted to my rod holder.

That's a good question. Would anything be different if you had a motor on it versus just rowing it??? scratch

boat & motor have to have nav light. red & green. kayaks, tubes, toons or rafts do not need them but it is recommended to have some type of light for at night for safty reasons.

But again this all depends on what shieff or harbor patol that may stop you.

I was stopped not too long in HH and asked them if there was any special requirements needed for tubes and they told me no and the light set up that i had was a pretty good idea.

I go stealth more and more at night. I have a good head lamp but I refrain its use whenever possible. I think it spooks the fish. Usually the only boats I need to dodge at night in the winter are the Duffey boats. And those knuckleheads dont pay attention to anything usually.

Pound for pound I fear a single long rower in broad day light than most any vessel in a harbor at night. Summertime is a little more heavy in traffic I will admit. Fog is a another area of debate.

My final answer is little to no light. Smart or dumb, good or bad, legal or illegal its how I float these days.
