Re: WTH is up w/ the spotlight?

And something that folks don't always realize is having a really bright light on creates shadows that make it HARDER to see what might be lurking. Best light is dim ambient light that seeps into the shadows so you can sorta see.
Going into Lunenberg at night when the tide was out it was BLACK down below dock level. I mean you couldn't see spit! Very disconcerting. Fortunately it was not my boat and I was not the skipper.
