anchor lights
 
Having sailed extensively outside the US
I always use an anchor light in the fore traingle, which is required by international regulations.

How do US sailors get by with just a masthead light?

anchor lights
 
According to COLREGS "(b) A vessel of less than 50 meters in length (at anchor) may exhibit an all-round white light where it can best be seen instead of the lights prescribed in paragraph (a) of this Rule."
