Ditto. The masthead light serves as an anchor light, so that shouldn't be lit while under way. The steaming light is for when you're steaming - not sailing. Of course, you can pretend to be a cruise liner and light everything all the time, add some Christmas lights, and let the other guys try to figure it all out. Chances are you don't have the displacement they have to make such an approach a deterrent to getting run down.
