Navigation lights

Guy's and gals, I am on the lookout for some 12v navigation lights for my RIB to accompany the std red and green and all round white.
I am looking for red, white, red for when I am surveying.

Any constructive comments welcome.
Thanks in advance

Permanent or temporary? In the past I've used a carbon fibre angling pole with a bracket bolted to the top to support day shapes (ball-diamond-ball) tied to a line. Our RIB has a couple of tubular sockets on the deck to accept a dive bottle rack, and these are ideal for slotting the pole into.
Depending on how long your surveys take, I would look at some battery powered LED lights.

Ive always had ellectric Nav and anchor lights all of which seem to need some sort of maintenance every few years. On the boat I have now I bought a few railblzer add ons including lights which have been going strong for two years now. The cost is extremely low compared to wiring in other lights and used from the extendable pole can be extended high enough on my console not to distract night vision.

I can simply use the pole and light on any of my kayaks too. Two years and over 320 hrs on my boat in all sorts of conditions is pretty good going for anything to last in my opinion!!
