Reducing glare from onboard lights helps preserve your night vision for safer boating when fishing in the dark. One common source of glare is the all-around white overhead navigation light mandated by the US Coast Guard. ­Hardtops and T-tops block a good bit of the light (particularly on the foredeck), but some white overhead beams still create glare in the aft cockpit. Perko’s Light Glare Shield (about $15) easily clamps to a ¾-inch-diameter light pole directly under the white light to block ­illumination from blasting the aft cockpit, yet the light still alerts other boaters to your presence. The plastic piece is lightweight, minimizing stress on the pole while underway.
