Re: anchor lights, was Tech Tips




Bob,

My understanding of maritime law or procedure is that when anchoring in
obvious traffic lanes (which I would only do as a last measure in the face
of an expected blow) you need an anchor light on top the mast. It is
possible boats the size of ours are not required to do this but where I live
that might invite a visit from a tug towing a barge or worse! This is off
the top of my head as my books and manuals are on board the boat and I am
home.
