practicality speaking here---in these anchorages we find the need for lower than masthead lighting
comes from not the sailing boats anchoring and entering a harbor, but for those pangas that sped thru anchorages--these souls do NOT look UP for lighting
. hence, cockpit lights
--do not use blue, s blue connotes whorehouses in mexico-- but of white whatever stays on all night. go ahead and use the masthead light if you wish, but do supplement with GOOD bunch of closer to the deck lighting
so these pangas donot hit your boat.
