IMHO, you're better off with individual switches for the bicolor, stern, steaming, tricolor and anchor lights.
The reasons for this are: First, the switches aren't a single point of failure for all your running lights, which it is in the rotary switch setup; Second, having them on individual switches means that you can use your anchor light in place of a steaming light and stern light on many smaller boats, giving you greater visibility when motoring offshore or in heavy weather—or in the case of a bulb burning out.

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.
