Re: Do you use dinghy lights?

I row, so do not display r/g running lights but I always carry a flashlight to warn off other boats. In busy harbors, the main problem is that some people go WAY too fast in their motorized dinks. Darting in between boats, up on plane, at 15-20 knots at night is inviting collision, possibly with me! +1 on the night vision.

Alberg 35: With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship.
