I was doing a slow pre dawn run south down the ICW a couple of weeks ago.  Every 20 seconds or so, I would check things out with an LED flashlight. Fortunately I spotted a real DA running north with NO navigation lights!  It doesn’t matter how careful you are, bad outcomes can still occur!  

You cant be too careful!  It’s never what you know.  It’s what you don’t know!

Per Capt Goodwine, marker illuminated on one side only. There are several in Tampa Bay hard to see even with illumination, and many others with reflective signs but not lighted.

Horrible, but seems totally avoidable.  0400 it’s dark and outrunning your vision is unsafe. Lighted, reflectors or not..he didn’t just bump it, he put it into the marker.  That’s speed and careless.
