Completely unrelated, but, it just occurred to me....shouldn't another boat be able to see both lights when directly off the bow ( at 12 o'clock)? Seems to me that since the lights are recessed in the hull, another vessel couldn't see either! How does that work?
Most likely older Perko chrome plated zinc alloy... One of the dumbest ideas to ever hit boating...
