Doublewise Boat Navigation Light
This solar boat light has the most comprehensive set of modes: Tricolor navigation, Anchor, Port, Starboard, Stern, Masthead, Bicolor navigation, Warning, and SOS Signal. There is a switch to go through them. This is also the only light that complies with COLREGS(1972) - the rules book for international navigation. You also have an amazing battery life.
Minimum order is 6, so either you buy with a buddy, you have a big boat, or you like having replacement parts. The mounting system works with Bolts or Magnets so you can easily change the modes or put the light system away.
This solar boat light is to help you see around your boat, not for navigation. The top feature is its water resistance (IP68). The light is LED (comes in blue or white) and the battery type is Lithium Ion. The battery life is not the best but the product purpose is about cosmetics rather than utility.
Very easy set up: no screws or tools needed, you use a 3M waterproof adhesive tape. Once you know where to put the light, simply use the tape. Also, the battery is easily replaceable.
