Jon-

I don't believe it is required, unless you are under power at night. However, a small sailboat, like yours, you can use an all-around white light and the bow bi-color, instead of a steaming light and stern light. IIRC, you can use your anchor light as the all-around white light.

Hope that helps.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
