Re: Installing a bow floodlight

A stationary bow light can easily be mistaken for a stern light.

"... additional stations or signal lights, shapes or whistle signals shall, so far as possible, be such that they cannot be mistaken for any light, shape, or signal authorized elsewhere under these Rules."
A sweeping (hand held) spot light, not so much. Better yet a light mounted on the mast at spreader height so the red/green lights are not overwhelmed.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
