Not used, but a well-regarded product, if a bit pricey.

NASA have an all-round white and a tri-colour available for 89 each.

The other alternative for occasional use is the NaviLight which has a strong magnetic and / or velcro mounting. Powered by AAA batteries which will last around 24 hours. They also float and the white has a flashing mode. We have those at 36.99. See details here

I don't suppose you bother. That barnet of yours can be seen from 6Nm in all directions!

Or this for a lot less money?

Kernow, it would look good Sikaflexed to your forehead.

I've bought a bair of Hella port and starboard LED's, but not keen on their LED Masthead offering.

you can buy LED bulbs that fit inside a sandard mast head, if that's any good.

Then nod your head to the beat of Hey Jo and you will have every ship in the area looking for the light sequence on their charts .
