Re: Do you use dinghy lights?

If you don't use at least a white light that can be seen from 360-degrees while dinghying at night in Marathon, FL, you're in for a rude awakening - a hefty fine and no warnings. A lot of folks easily solved the light in the cockpit problem by mounting the light at the top of a 4-foot pole attached to the transom, and attaching a small, plastic dinner plate directly beneath the light. This prevented all the spillover light from entering the cockpit, thereby preserving your night vision. I should have taken a photo of that, but unfortunately, it's one of the many I didn't shoot.
