Re: Do you use dinghy lights?
...As to the guy with the searchlight, COLREGS section 129.a.3 is very clear on that. After the first pass of the searchlight, you're allowed to SHOOT IT OUT in the interest of preserving your might vision, which is essential to national security. A varmint rifle is good for that. Remember, section 129.a.4 also specifies that you're only allowed three shots, so make sure to practice.
Why not just use a shotgun? That'll guarantee you take that sucker out.
