Now I don't need to send the Admiral forward with a hand held light!

She especially appreciates it when it is blowing 30 and raining! Now I single hand with more comfort, too. And safety!

I also have a night vision scope but the flood is better. No looking through the scope required. I like being able to "announce" my presence when a busy channel is suffering from low visibility. Having a 2 hundred K cp beacon flash on is more effective than the bow mounted running lights. Time to move them to the top of the mast.
