Which is very odd, because with that combination you can never legally motor at night. The minimum number of switches is 4 : Anchor light, nav / running lights, steaming (aka 'masthead'), and strobe. Unless you have a steaming light wired into the nav light switch, in which case you can never legally sail at night.
OK, I'll respond to something that has nothing to do with my original question.

If my question had anything to do with my steaming light, that on every boat I've owned is on the front of my mast above the spreaders and is used at night when under motor and has it's own separate switch, I would have used the term STEAMING LIGHT some where in my question.

Instead, I was talking about the try-combo fixture at my masthead.
Maybe instead of using the term, masthead. I should have said THE TIPPI-TOP PART OF THE TALL METAL THINGY THAT'S HELD UP BY WIRES SO IT CAN HOLD THE SAILS UP.

Re: Mast head lights

Can't say I particularly care for your tone or your attitude.

I'm done here.

Mark,

I do apologize for offending you.

I was seeking help on an issue that confused me.
If you read my original question, and the responses, most of, you'll see, like yours, had little or no connection to my question and I did take my frustration with CF out on your post.

IF you'll read on one of my responses I figured it out with some help 1st from and friend and then a CF response, tested the theory and was surprised at how my combo-mast-head-light does work off of two wires.

Again, I apologize!

Brown Sugar
