The red light is located on the port side (left side) of the SWITCH, and the green light is located on the starboard (right side). This is the same for all boats and these lights help you determine the heading or the direction of travel of other boats on the water. If you look off the front of your SWITCH and spot another boat and see the red light visible, that indicates the boat is moving towards your left. If you see the green light, the other boat is moving towards your right. You can use that information to make the best decision possible to steer clear of each other.
The white light located towards the stern (rear) of all SWITCH pontoons is used as a locator light. Often, this is the first light you’ll see when spotting another boat in the dark. Once you identify a boat’s location, you can use the red and green lights discussed above to determine their course of travel. This white stern light must remain on after dusk whether you’re anchored or underway.
All navigational lighting on the SWITCH is operated by a toggle switch located at the helm (or console), easily within reach for the Captain.
