The switch marked steaming was just a toggle that was added by the PO. I have pawned the 5-year-old daughter off on a neighbor for an overnight trip and the wife is working so I will be doing an all day and nighter working on the boat so I will look tonight and see how she lights.
Jacky -- The P-27 did come standard with the steaming light (located on the front of the mast about 2/3 of the way up maybe?), but no anchor light was standard. Your PO must have changed things around. As others have said, the steaming light and anchor light are 2 different lights. You need to figure out what the PO did and how he did it, and then proceed from there to set things up the way you want them.
