Yes, the MegaLight is one way to go. I have one that I hang over the cockpit of the boat when at anchor, along with the masthead anchor light. Gives me good lighting for lining up the crossbow shot on intruders at night.

My thinking so far is: Aqua Signal 25 all around anchor light, 50' Genuine dealz 14/2 round tinned wire.

I plan on running wire to disconnect as it exits mast in cabin (keel stepped mast) then to a spare switch on my DC control panel. Does this sound right? Am I missing something? Thanks for the help!
As for your idea... that should work fine, assuming you mean circuit breaker or fused switch at the panel. A 50' run of 14 AWG will support about 2.5 amps at about 5.3% voltage drop.

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.
