Nightblaster Remote Spotlight

Use this light for safer solo navigation.

A hand-held spotlight has its place but not when you're the sole hand on board trying to pick your way through tricky passages. This one quickly suctions onto a smooth deck, and the 500,000 candle-power lamp is powered by a 12-volt plug and draws only 4.8 amps. Suctioned to my hardtop, the corded remote control enabled me to swivel the beam up, down, left and right to blaze the path for safer navigation. $80; westmarine.com
