Re: Do you use dinghy lights?

i used to use em, then i left usa and sd bay, looked for them last year, but they were rotted out and no longer usable..lol they donot last long for the money ....
is much more pleasant here without the water nazis...
and do keep a good flashlight on ye at all times if gonna be out in a dink at night--
pangas come out of no where and is good if they know where ye are, so they wont hit you.
as for finding ones own boat in darkness--is why gods made unique lighting for you to use as cockpit or anchor lighting so you appear as a different thing to hit than the neighbors....in a crowded anchorage it can make a lot of difference.
