on the Chesapeake Bay where I cruise our biggest problem at night is tugs pushing barges...the tugs are lit up, but the barges are not and they're out front!!!!

If a boat has a lot of lights - steer clear. MY philosophy. Also never cut in front or behind these vessels in cas of a tow. It is not a bad idea to know theat tow boats will have two or three stacked white lites on a mast as tows are the biggest problem at night. I have my Chapman bookmarked to the pages with lights for quick reference.
