Capta can you explain why? I usually choose masthead tricolor over the deck level lights for visibility.

FWIW I do check the alignment. And my lighting control panel actually prevents the use of both deck level and tricolor at that same time (selector switch, you get one or the other). But aside from those issues is there another reason the masthead tricolor is a bad choice?
