Question Mystery panel: TELCOR boat speed

Does anyone have any idea what this thing is, or what it does? See attached image.

It almost seems self-explanatory... except that boat speed and light brightness don't really have any relationship that's obvious to me, and there's just a single knob.

Does it make your cabin lights get brighter as the boat gets faster? Perhaps this is the 1970s equivalent of that thing where your car radio gets louder when you go faster. I wasn't living at the time, but my understanding is that strange things happened in the 70s.
