Lights

I would like to put lights on to my SR5.4 would I need to fit port, starboard and higher white or, as it is not that big, would one all round white mounted on a pole suffice legally?

Many thanks

Ian

Then how come the rnli d classes only have a white? I thought it was if your boat was under 12m then a white only was fine?

that might be because its under 7m although they go quicker than 7 knots, so thats strange unless they can't put the nav lights anywhere on board

I would go for all three navigation lights.

Better safe than sorry.

yes thats right ,they started to fit both red/green as a small bi light on the dodger and the all around white on a stainless mast,,which was removeble ,, around 8 or 9 years ago so they can be used for night time rescues ,,before that they were limited to day light only ,,... the smaller Y boat inflatables carried on the severn /tamar lifeboats have no nav lights fitted but the helmsman can use his lifejacket light fixed to the velcro strip on top of his helmet if needed at night .
