Does anyone have suggestions for a white navigation light for a dingy? Battery powered LED and mounted on a pole. I would like something that can be clamped onto the transom this would allow it to be removed. There are one or two types out there but fairly expensive for what they are.

Re: Dinghy nav light

We have one with a rubber sucker at the base that sticks to the outboard cover.

One dark night I was attempting to stick it on-with no success. I eventually stuck it, all OK.

Looked at the outboard next day-it had a breather hole right where I first tried to fix it!

It takes 2xD cells and is a useful bit of kit if delayed at the pub.....................

Not strictly compliant but I use a LED head torch and have a bit of reflective tape on the bow of the dinghy.

Under 7m and 7kt all you have to do is show a white light in good time to prevent a collisions, so a decent LED head torch should be fine.
