Yes, I know you can only use them if your a Hovercraft, but I've always thought they could be a good safety aid both at sea and especially on the side of the motorway if you break down.
At the side of the motorway then your trailerboard already has two orange flashing lights on it. There are plenty of cheap laterns available for this sort of purpose that aren't fully water proof (etc as you would want when leaving on an a-frame). You can also leave them in the car for when you are not towing the boat. Also probably more effective placed well before the hazard than simply on the hazard (as should be the case with a warning triangle).
Don't see what advantage it offers at sea - it is simply going to add confusion, make it harder for people to see your nav lights. Close to shore (if you are not in an area where Air Cushioned Vehicles normally opperate, or fishering vessels) then I think they could get confused for shore lights.
