A "cold blast" lantern will provide a lot more light. Those little "dead flame" yacht lamps are really more for "atmosphere" than actual lighting (or maybe as a sort of "night-light"). Kerosene lanterns with mantles, either pressurized ones like Coleman or non-pressurized ones like Aladdin, produce the most light (too much for my taste, as ones night vision is toasted by them) but also produce a lot of heat and fumes. A small boat cabin can be filled with lamp oil/kerosene fumes pretty quickly by a mantled lantern.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
