Removable nav lights kit

Anyone come across a set of removable nav lights? Thinking for occasional use could keep them and then cable tie them on when needed? Red and green up front and all around white on a pole higher than the red green and drivers head?

Thinking wired into a small waterproof box with;a switch and then 2 leads to the battery? With a small fuse?

Considered led bike lights anyoneís used them can you get the visibility ?

Was looking at
https://www.lalizas.com/product/33-s...291-pole-light

As can fit it to console as no A frame......

This one ticks all the boxes. Railblaza are pretty bombproof. Expensive, but they do the job well.

Being mono-directional, these do not work too well.

This is the better product:

Some come for a larger diameter rail and others more suitable for bike posts.
Amazon also has them (for a lot more)

Removable nav lights kit

This works really well. Made by ďNavisafeĒ (they do other mounts and other colour combinations as well). Iíve simply gone for an all round white for occasional use (technically legal up to 7 knots). Mounts sturdily on any stainless rail as per the photo (white bit is permanently mounted) also came with a bracket which screws onto a vertical surface so you could mount it on the side of a console or on the transom. Pole breaks down into four pieces and all stows in a little pouch included. UG coastguard approved so a proper nav light rather than a bike light. Not that cheap at around £100 but works very well. Handy to install as runs off internal batteries so no need to worry about wiring etc.

Looks like that uses a go pro mount to fix the light to the pole? If it does that interesting as I could mount go pro to it as well in daylight hmm got a link?

This the one? How sturdy is once assembled will it handle high speed over choppy seas? Or is it just for use when anchored in flat calm water?

Yes thatís the pole kit. You just need the light as well! You can indeed mount a GoPro on it - have tried that and works ok. Iíve used the light for several nighttime passages without any issues. The white base mount part mounts with nuts and bolts and an adjustable rubber insert to the rail so itís very sturdy.
