Re: Do you use dinghy lights?
I sometimes wear a headlamp (360 degree white light) on top of my head using the strap as a chin strap. Yes, I rearrange the strap so I'm wearing it as a regular headlamp as I approach the dock so no one sees me
Of course I concur that the ColRegs under 7 meters, under 7 knots, need only an all around white light or, if practical also side lights.
What would make sense is to permit one to use a 67.5 degree stern light and side lights on a small vessel so that one would maintain night vision...but that would make sense and we cannot expect the government to start making sense.
