  8. LED are worse, as the light is direct and far brighter for less voltage. LED strobes are now used on night time battlefields to blind opposing forces.
  9. I find this is getting more common, with some having 2 lights at the front!! Like you, I struggle with the oncoming boat, using umbrella or hat visor to protect eyes. I have now started to keep a large LED work light at the back with me, if I really struggle, I direct it at the other boat and turn it on just before the boats meet.....usually to shouts and complaints as they lose their vision. As we pass, I explain that I have had just that for the whole duration of them coming towards me.
  10. Perhaps if everyone HAS to book, they wont need to staff the widebeam passages any more.
  11. I always wonder if people are more likely to fall to their deaths in a lock whilst work is taking place rather than in normal unfenced operations that thousands of boaters pass through each year..
