Yes, but you would think that if the MegaLight was USCG compliant for use as an anchor light, they would say so on their sight.

I would also refer you to the following story.

Quote:
The Mega-Light actually comes in three versions. The original model, now called a "Utility," has no provision for mounting. The identical light with an L-shaped stainless steel bracket and a 12-inch pigtail for wiring directly into the ship’s power instead of a portable cord is named the "Masthead." Although Davis claims a two-mile visibility, which would be legal as an anchor light on most vessels, the Mega-Light is nowhere near as bright as a standard anchor light. We have a Masthead model mounted in the interior as a security light at our stairway with a switch to turn it off when it is not wanted.

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.
