Here are some low-cost attention getters.
On this page are found some practical items used to attract attention, pinpoint your position or make your boat more visible. Signal mirrors (also called “safety mirrors”) are used to reflect the sun towards whoever you want to notice you. Reflective strips increase visibility in low visibility situations. Raising the black, cylindrically-shaped day mark signal informs boats around you that you are constrained by draft. Another attention getter is Orion’s Dye Marker, which you can use to write on snow or turn the water around your boat bright green. Also by Orion is their Signal Accessory Kit, which contains a USCG-approved 3' x 3' distress flag (Shows black square and black ball on orange background), SOLAS-approved whistle with lanyard, signaling mirror with lanyard and their environmentally-safe high visibility green fluorescein dye marker in a waterproof container with lanyard.
