    Doesn't that low white light make it difficult to see while driving at night?

    No mate, got me beat why they're called anchor lights.

    When you're running you need all lights on, red, green & all round white.
    Need a white light on a tall stick so your body doesn't obstruct it to be legal.

    The railblazer ones are easily that bright I reckon.
    Possibly brighter.

    Not sure where here you are but if you are near Caboolture area you can come and have a look at mine before you buy.

    No mate. Have always required either a steaming/masthead and stern light or on vessels under a certain size, a white all round as well. Most people just chose to ignore the white all round while running as it causes visibility problems for the skipper unless it's mounted up high on a targa or rocket launcher so as to not show any reflected light off the hull. By law it has to be a minimum distance above the running/nav lights - think it's a metre (in Qld at least). There are separate provisions for low speed small boats to just have the white allround.

    Gazza the standard light switches have always been...

    Pos 1 = OFF
    Pos 2 = White all round light only.
    Pos 3 = Red, Green & White.

    Scottar I don't think the All Round White Light is in addition to the Mast Head Light + Stern Light, more so it's an alternative.
    At the end of the day a boat needs to have a White Light visible for 360 Degrees, that can be Masthead + Stern or All Round White not both.

    That's the way it was supposed to read for vessels under a certain size. Over a certain size it is a requirement and the all round is only for anchoring.

    Fed is correct with the lights but there is one more where vessels greater than 50m needs 2 all round white lights.
    It is set above and abaft of the first one.
    All lights need to be visible from a certain distance depending on vessel size and/or survey class.
