Lads, I think we should nip round, and break that lad out. Happiness is not a Banan. That's Stockholm Syndrome right there

KY, heres a very sketchy picture of what Zub was trying to say.

Your lights should be - red/green sidelights visible from the bow to 22.5 degrees behind the beam (red on port side, green on starboard side). These should be visible for 1 nm. Then there should be an all round white light visible for 2 nm which should be mounted at least 1m above the coloured lights. So if I am aproaching from dead ahead I see red and green together with white above and "know" it is the bow of a powerboat. If I am approaching from your starboard side I see green with white above it and know it is the starboard side of a powerboat. If I am coming from astern then I'll just see a white light and it could be a powerboat from behind (or several other possibilities!).

The problem is if I am approaching from the side of your boat the spotlights and radar reflector are shadowing the all round white light so there is a good chance I only see a green (or red) light. That makes you appear to be a sailing vessel. Its technically wrong, the rules make some allowance for it but not as much as you have your white light obscured, and you could fix it by putting the all round white on a longer pole above the a frame.

Polwart - thank you that makes a lot of sense - will have to see what we might be able to do to increase the height - providing I can persuade my electrician
