Thanks for the stimulation and thoughts

Well said Boasun spoken like a true paranoid seaman. You know the kind that spend years at sea and still manage to live till a ripe old age? I could not agree more and that is what I was trying to get across with a bit of tact et al. Then again I doubt my cat sailing friend has ever even seen the rule book much less read it. Come to think about it I wonder how many skippers out there have read it?

The thing about the LED,s is not brightness it is about the color of the light. Look close and you will see most are a bluish white that is exactly the color of most stars. As to bright Canopus (Never could remember how to spell that one)gets so bright some times you can see it in the day time. No my point is about looking exactly like a star when only a mile or less away.
