Ends? What does that mean?
Believe me there going to see me after I light this baby up! My REAL question was did supra originally put it there as a platform light or was it a saftey light? Im plan on adding 2-light swithes. One will run all of my red lights and then I will have super brights (white) for cleaning, working and finding sh*t in the dark.

I'm a little bit confused here. You called me out for introducing false information and then agreed with me and then disagreed with me? For the sake of argument: Using duct tape to hold the plane wings on IS illegal, wearing a motorcycle helmet is up to you (even though I'll be wearing mine) and I'm guessing that most of the bodies that you've recovered at night were because someone was drinking AND couldn't see the other boat. Not sure that a stern light would have prevented that.
For the record -- I'm still not arguing that removing your stern light is SAFE. But I am trying to be clear about what is required and what is not. And I don't think that stern lights are common on small power-boats.
Additionally: I've never seen a fishing boat with a transom light. I've never seen an outboard with one. A quick search of current Natique, Mastercraft and Malibus doesn't show any current model with a USCG stern light.... And I believe that the Saltare is unique in that it does have one. Do any of the other legacy Supras have them? Any of the current ones?

I've always understood it is an either or if you have two and want both on. I now have two white transom LED lights which should do the job of letting someone know which direction I'm heading if I decide to use them.
Problem I find nowadays is they put the hull lights on these boats for whatever reason and most people think they are fine to run at night as you go down the lake. Drives me nuts that people are so stupid and use those instead of their nav lights while I'm blinded as they come at me, but I'm the one who gets pulled over for non compliance.

Most of the time, believe it or not, the wrecks didn't have alcohol involved. The captains just never saw the other vessel.
And yes, my Comp had them, my Mariah had them, as well as the other vessels I've captained.
Right or wrong I see it like this... Clearance lights on a trailers are red on the back and yellow on the front. Just like 99.99% of all vehicles out there. To me a red and white light on the rear would be confusing and cause me to second guess my first instint..... Boating at night is hard enough as it is and why ask for problems from the coast guard for nothing.
