Require Navigation lights

I have a question on required navigation lights. I have a 20'' sailboat with a 5hp outboard. What navigation lights are required for night time operations under sail and power?

I am somewhat confused because of information I found at the following website: http://www.boat-ed.com/in/handbook/lights.htm. If I am reading this correctly, I do not need any navigation lights while under sail, except for the ability to illuminate my sail. Conversely, while under power, nothing is listed for vessels under 15hp.

Can someone please clear up what what lights I am required to have, and (if applicable) what lights I "should" have for sail and power applications.

Thanks.

Doug
