Switching between lights
« on: October 18, 2018, 12:36:28 PM »

At last nights club night sail I noticed one of the boats could switch on nav lights or spot light or both whereas I can only switch all my lights on or off. I saw that the actuation was controlled by the right hand stick forward or backward.
Can anyone tell me what type of switch is normally used and how it is wired in to the lighting circuit.
As you may have guessed I know "xxxxx" all about the "Black Arts"
Thanks,
Dave.
