Nav lights

I want to fit nav lights to my boat. I don't have an A frame, so I plan to put a light on a pole at the back. (This will also allow me to hang flags and things off it ).
I have seen a type of light on a pole which is tri-colour (white red and green). I was wondering whether these are "legal" as fitting one would be much easier than fitted two other lights to the sides of the console (red and green).

PS. This is the tri-colour light on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...category=15271

Hi Tim, this has been discussed before: Tornado owners - a question

A tricolour will NOT comply with the regulations. See thread in link for more details. HTH

Yep. Just to clarify, you need an all round white light on a power boat with separate side lights, which 'should' be 1m below the white. Tricolour are only suitable for sailing boats up to 20m in length.

Think you need this sort of set up. White light doesn't need to be on the centre line of the boat so off setting is useful.

well i think the tri-colour would be better than none at all legal or not.
i don,t want to be out at night but if i had to in a emgency i would like some thing i have no a frame the front consul is
all so the back of a seat fitting to the side of the consul would be no good i was looking at a pole fitted off center at the back with one tri-colour as the vailant frame is not legal any way and its the only one i can get for my boat

found this lot must be able to fit them some were run for 9 hours on battery
power
