Default Anyone have an automatic pop up bow light?

Accon said they just discontinued their remote control pop up bow light since powerboaters like us were using them and they wouldn't hold up.

Anyone tried one or have one?

I had one on my Nor Tech. After two years the pin broke and would no longer pop up on it's own. I had liked it up until then. In a lake or small water application would be just fine.

Running with a spot light on would be illegal.

no you knuckleheads, the aft anchor light, it telescopes up. It's a good idea but the company that was making them couldnt make it work for our stuff.

Why could you not run with a spot light on? I do it/have seen others do it all the time. WTF is it for if you can't use it?
