Re: Do you use dinghy lights?
Rulz is rulz so you have to show a light (or lights). Sometimes it may make sense not to show a light - a well lit anchorage or perhaps in a remote anchorage where you are enjoying the moon - but legal it is not.
If you choose not to show lights in the wrong place you may find yourself starting a new thread about legalizing drugs after you're hassled by (fill in the agency) that uses their FLIR or night vision to spot you and wonder if your lights are out because you are hauling contraband.
