Pulling into a very familiar anchorage last night I was dumbfounded that anyone would think that those ridiculous little LED rechargeable yard decorations could serve as anchor
lights. We had 2 people up on the bow as I slid in at 2 knots and all the boats with masthead anchor
lights were completely visible. Several people who were willing to trust their home and investment to lawn toys were nearly invisible until we were almost on top of them. Those dim little rechargeable LEDs at deck
height disappeared into the lights of the town behind them, doing nothing to help visibility adn they were so inadequate that it was more effective to look for the dark spots in the bay than to try to spot the lawn glitter.
People please, don't do it. Turn on your real anchor light unless you really want my 1" thick solid fiberglass boat
with a 7" thick stem plowing through your salon
