My old Davis Utility Light has about had the course (5 years is ok by me)
so will probably replace with the Cruising Solutions light suggested above (Tks).
Anyway it hangs from the end of the boom and is visible from anywhere except dead ahead while in a dink. Also illuminates cockpit
when you get home late and makes it easier to find the boat here in the RV Park...
Because we are beyond the COLREGS line we are required to run a 360 light even while on a mooring
. Last refit
bought a SeaChoice cheapie ($30 USCG accepted) to replace the existing incandescent masthead light. 3 years later still working great with about 0.06 amp draw. Local grouper-troopers are sticky about anchor
lights especially during the season. As I am old and forgetful about turning things on and off, and as I may not be here at dusk, the cheap
masthead light has been running 24/7 for just about a year now! Interested to see how long it lasts...
Another popular option here in the harbor is the Luci Light.
water-proof, light weight. See 'em for everything from aux anchor lights to dinghy
all rounds. (stick em on a piece of pvc) $20 or less.
More lights at anchor (or mooring) is better. Look at the big ships at anchor. Looks like Christmas
