Re: Do you use dinghy lights?

Next time you break an oar in the dark or run out of gas and are hanging to a bouy or better yet drifting with the tide and wind for off shore islands or even better hanging to the upturned dink in 7 degree water just be thankful you didn't get suckered for the revenue grab.

Re: Do you use dinghy lights?

I live aboard , but have to go to work at 5 am so I use a suction cup mounted light on a 20 litre bucket at the bow of my inflatable . Also a stern light on a pole . That way I can be seen in the dark while motoring to the boat ramp , should have saved my money and got a bag of rocks to throw at the fishos leaving the ramp at that time , they are to busy playing with chart plotters and fishing gear or cups of coffee to actually look where they are going . At least I can count on one or two days of the week to have an exciting start .
