Who has the best masthead light?

I am interested in getting a good mastheadlight for anticollision purposes while single handing. Who has the brightest one? Any absurd creative ideas that are perhaps absurdly bright? What about the one that draws the lowest amps or a combination of the two.

Along these lines, I am looking for the best (within my ecconimic means) anchor light. And yes - I do want LED

34 foot sailboat.

Thanks

The LED-based anchor/tricolor combination lights are a pretty good bargain. Some, like the Orca Green Marine units, feature a strobe function as well.

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.
