I'd like to know how any of you Revenge Owners store your All around light when not in use? On my 20 WT I stuff it in the cabin but it's always in the way. I've never really had to use it yet as I don't fish at night so it's only on board to meet the safety regs. Thanks

If you do not boat between sunset and sunrise, you do not need to carry the light on board.

However, if you get caught out after sunset, and do not have the light aboard, you will not be in compliance with the law.

The problem of stowing the 100" tall stern light on my Revenge Walk-Through was solved by the installation of a RADAR arch which has a 360 degree white light permanently installed on top.

I solved that problem the same way as Tom - the best way to fix but not the cheapest :-)

Prior to that I had a cut down version of the light that I used on my Outrage 25 - it was about 7' long and would just fit under one of the gunwales - so about 16" shorter than stock but still pretty long, worked decently, and it stored out of the way. I don't know how long your under gunwale storage is but you might see how much height you'd lose if you cut it to fit under there.

It's only the Revenge 20 so not much storage under the gunnels. Can't do a Radar Arch as I keep this boat in the driveway and don't want anything much bigger out there for the neighbours to whine about. I guess I will look into a connector that may allow me to 'fold' it in half when not in use. This way if would fit under the gunnels. No idea where to look though! Thanks guys
