Reflective tape on the circular life rings on boats to be thrown to 
overboard passengers was strongly suggested a number of years 
back.   A drunk fell off a riverboat in Edmonton, Alberta.  The radio 
amateurs doing a flood watch tracked the person as he went down the 
river.  However the fire dept boat had a tough time finding him with 
their spotlights.
