Re: Masthead tricolors

How do tricolors and deck level nav lights get wacked out of alignment? Mine are screwed into place and have no "adjustments". I personally like my tricolor. In a seaway, my deck mounts have an effective range of only about fifty feet. Whereas I could spot tricolors a couple miles away. I spot merchant ships from miles away and call them up on the VHF to let them know what direction they should look to see me.
