I have a six-switch panel for my running/navigation light setup. The top two switches are for the masttop light, the middle two are for the masthead lights, and the bottom two are for deck level lights.

Tricolor light
Anchor light
Spreader light
Steaming light
Stern Light
Bow Bi-color light

The switches are marked, and they're setup so that the colored lights are the top-most and bottom-most switches. The lowest three switches are for the boat in motion...as is the top-most... depending on whether we're inshore or offshore.

The mast-top fixture is an LED Tricolor/Anchor/Strobe light, and if you flip the two top switches, the strobe activates.

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.
