It is excellent. I don't even tie it to the pole anymore, the magnetic attachment works so well.

Brad we use the same light. Fits the bill is simple and we don attach it to stern mounted pole

(5) Operating modes:

All on – Tri-color navigation light (135° white, 112.5° red, 112.5° green)
White only – Stern navigation light
Red and green – Bi-color navigation light
Red only – Port navigation light
Green only – Starboard navigation light
Just curious - I thought that motorized boats (including motorized dinghies) needed red/green, and then 360° white. (That's why sailboats have steaming lights.) It seems from the description that this light does not meet that requirement because it can't do 360° white light at the same time as the red/green . What gives?

It doesn't meet the standards without the 360 degree white.

Re: How tight dinghy inflation. Plus lights

"Drum tight" was the general advice given to me if I didn't have a pressure gauge to hand. And in these parts, a dinghy is required to have the same lights if operating under power at night as any other powered vessel under a certain size, YMMV.
