I still think portable nav lights are more likely to be closer to the intent. Especially if there are no inbuilt nav lights.

On a swivel? I think your best guess was the staysail self tacking boom.

Why would a 'staysail self tacking boom' require a 12v power source?

And the swivel would be a bit, a lot too small and whimsical for that too would it not?
