Re: Combo anchor & steaming light
A steaming light is also only vis from 180 deg ( sorry, 225 deg).any way's, An anchor light need's 360 deg. vis. You should have an anchor light that comes on automatically when the sun goes down. Also, when it's on the mast head sometimes it blends in with the stars for a fast moving skiff. I hang mine low, 10 feet above my bimini. There is a mlia sec. when it's obscured by the mast from head on, but it illuminates the boat so you can still see it.
