    Re: Tri-color plus steaming
    From: Dave Weilacher

    The problem with having the tri-color plus steaming light lit is it shows to 
    another boat as Red over White. (or Green over White).  That is a different 
    thing than what you are.
    
    I've also seen people with tri-colors run with their tri-color and running lights.  Red over Red.
    
    ...and under power with tri-color, steaming and running lights.  Red over White over Red.
    
    Oh, and from astern you get white over white.
    
    I run with proper lights at night but keep a sail up.  When in doubt, I get 
    out my flashlight (torch) and shine it on my sails.  Sort of the puffer fish 
    defense mechanism.
