I only have the stern white light and the red/green bow light switch marked running lights. i have a white light at the top of the mast and it was hooked up to a switch marked steaming that would only work if the running lights were on. I am putting in a new breaker switch today to run the light at the top of the mast through and moving it to the spot marked anchor light so i can anchor with it independent of the running lights and also use a mega light lower while anchoring. The questions are:
#1 Am I correct to independly switch the light at the top of the mast and mark it anchor?
#2 Can i turn this on while under poer at night and use it for a steaming light or do i need to add a lower steaming/masthead light.
Notice that due to an earlier thread i am not calling the light at the top of the mast a masthead light.
