Personally, I'd be more inclined to move the anchor light down with a light on each side of the mast rather than moving the steaming light up (from an ease of visibility perspective).
Interesting. Yeah. I don’t like the idea of a steaming light way up there. I feel like that doesn’t make much sense. That’s why I was a little confused by these particular products.
I will keep the bright LED masthead anchor light in my plan. Because that’s only part of my lighting
at anchor but is still a very important part.
As it turns out, all of my lights are broken. They smashed the steaming light and deck
lights on delivering my mast. And the tricolor late is failing my tests and broken. More of that super high-quality contracting people to do Boat work
So I’m going at it with no lights at this point. I have to start fresh unfortunately.
Thinking I will do a masthead anchor light. Combination steaming light and deck
light about halfway up the mast, also need a new bow light. I used to have side mounts but they got torn off by hurricane
damage. This time since I have a seagull striker I think I’m going to put a vertical mount bow light on the seagull striker like a lot of monohulls have in their bow pulpit. And I never had a stern light ha ha. Haven’t really taken this thing out in the dark. So I will grab one of those also.
I don’t have a choice because I have to do some overnight passages since I can’t fit inside the ICW
after this stop
