Stern light with davits

I have davits on my boat and when the dinghy is up the stern light is covered by the dinghy. I also have a masthead tri color that I use but I want to rig another stern light and maybe mount it on the davits some how. Has anyone run into this?

Had the same issue

I had the same issue & mounted a separate stern light on my radar pole.


It's mounted right in front of that reflective tape..

I found a small stern light and mounted it on the solar panel. The forward panel lifts up for excess to the stern ladder.

You start sailing with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The idea is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

On my CS36M I took the original stern light off the transom and bolted it to a plate welded to my wind generator pole. Just extended the wiring a bit.

I have seen a temporary detacable light adapted to mount right on the dinghy when the dinghy is on the davits.

I did something similar to what Mainesail has and it works well for us, matter of fact I find it to have less glare above the bimini.

I bought an Aqua Signal stern light and a pulpit bracket. I replaced the nuts on the bracket with wingnuts and wired the light with allegator clips. I can put it up on the davit cross support bar in about two minutes and clip the light to the house battery in the rear lazerette when needed. And when not needed, the light can be stowed away.

Mainsail, What a Beautiful Boat!

Mainsail, just thought I would let you know how beautiful your boat is. That looks like a professional shot for a magazine cover. Wow! I am still plugging along with my '81 Catalina 30. She will look nice some day
