establishment of aids to navigation without permission of the Coast 
Guard. 33 CFR 66.01-5 provides a means for private individuals to 
establish privately maintained aids to navigation. Under 43 U.S.C. 
1333, the Coast Guard has the authority to promulgate and enforce 
regulations concerning lights and other warning devices relating to the 
promotion of safety of life and property on artificial islands, 
installations, and other devices on the outer continental shelf 
involved in the exploration, development, removal, or transportation of 
resources there from. 33 CFR 67.35-1 prescribes the type of aids to 
navigation that must be installed on artificial islands and fixed 
structures. Under the provision of 33 U.S.C. 409, the Secretary of
