Is that an MCA rule?

International Regulations of the Prevention of Collisions at Sea.

Applies to all vessels - commercial or not.

It's disappointing to see poor nav lights on so many ribs.

Folding or removeable mast would do the trick.

Used to have a removeable A frame on my 5.4m searider - was very handy a couple of times.

Thanks for that. Yes, I had been looking at any photos of other a-frames, and there seem to be loads about that have much smaller vertical separations between lights, suppose it's down to form over function.

Another point to conside for the all round white is that it needs to be high enough so you don't obscure it if you stand up!

There are pleanty of installations where the all round white is mounted direct onto the A-Frame which is easily blocked by heads!

I got one of these. It's maybe not the most robust but is easily folded. Seems to have stood up to the waves and weather so far! http://www.marinescene.co.uk/product...te-pole-light-

Again, it's hard wired but does at least fold so it can lie along top of A-Frame


Good Luck!

or None!
I only have the one tricolour on my frame but there isn't really an easy way of mounting a full set on the fairly skimpy frame Humber supplied with the boat. The next one will be better, after the wife finally gets her new kitchen.

Well today I looked round to find said light swinging happily from its cable having snapped at the bracket - it appears these are not up to the job!
