I have been using multiple Harbor Freight solar garden lights as anti dingy lights. Got a ten foot length of cheap PVC at Home Depot and cut it in four lengths and attached to life line posts using zip ties. The pipe on the garden lights fit inside the PVC. Just pull them out when I leave to cruise
Even with this set up the garden lights are a little above eye level but folks are much more likely to notice them than if they have to look up at a 45 degree angle to see the USCG compliant mast head
light you can see at over two miles.
It is often the case that folks in a dingy returning to their boat not only are not looking high in the sky where the masthead light is, they also may have been drinking a refreshing beverage.
