Locate Signals vs Alert Signals:
Visual Signals and Flares rely on line of sight. Due to the curvature of the earth and line of sight restrictions, potential rescuers can only see a handheld electronic light and handheld flares (Locate Signals) up to 3 miles away. Anyone beyond 3 miles will not see Locate Signals. This is why aerial flares (Alert Signals) should also be on your boat. Alert Signals can be seen as far away as 41 miles (See Site Chart link below) to alert potential rescuers you require assistance. As rescuers approach, Locate Signals help pinpoint your exact location.
