Mark's original picture clearly warrants "low vis" requirements as per NOAA/USCG (LESS THAN 10nm visibility)

Not everyone would turn things on but if anything went wrong...NOT having running lights on and sounding fog signals would weigh heavily against you.

The only time I ignore the 10NM vis rule is when the body of water is so small you can see clearly across it even though vis is less than 10NM.
