Visual Distress Signals for Paddle Craft?

Question: In your Paddle Craft Workshop PowerPoint it states that canoes & kayaks are required to have VDS on board when on federally control waters which requires them. But on page 16 of the VE manual it states that a manually propelled boat is an exception to the VDS requirement. Which is correct?

Answer: The Paddle Craft Workshop PowerPoint is current, the VE manual was created back in 2000 and is outdated. When the new manual is completed and printed, the changes will be included.
