Seems you missed the description of precisely how lit the harbor is and how the offending boater was limiting, not improving their sight.

I will rest comfortably knowing that 90% of the dinghies around me have no running lights, but yours will be on.
No one flamed you poor sir just disagreed with you that's all.

I have anchored and also been to Edgartown. Not sure what your point is. I agreed with your comment and Captain Tony that you can see at night well without light

Again the purpose is to be seen by others. That's the safe thing to do. And yes mine will be on

I guess I need to ride with a 2,000,000 candlepower flashlight now in that area. Who knows what is speeding around in the dark Least I will spot it before it slices us in half
