According to the data on the USCG website, when a sailboat is under power, an all round white light is only legal in international waters.
Dang. I was about to say that.
Inland rules differ from the COLREGS in only a very few ways, but this happens to be one of them. You might also not that a small white light is much
harder to see against a background of shore lights than are red and green nav lights (which are plenty hard enough to pick out, at times).
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
