I have two Weems and Plath yacht lanterns (Don't judge me, they came with the boat!) and I use them regularly.
My understanding is that the "old" Weems and Plath lanterns work well, but the new ones are really for decoration and do not work as well, and frequently leak.

I had a couple of the cheap red lanterns from Big Lots that lasted a few years, paid 4.99 for them. Worked for my purposes, but would not want to try to read by the light. They were nice on the porch, and did not attract insects.

Don't worry I think we have already "judged" you!
