In the USA you can only use the tricolor while sailing. It is not used while motoring or motor sailing.

congrats on the new boat. My older SM #37 had rail mounted lights but they failed at some point before I bought the boat. A previous owner switched to using a trcolor mast head light in place of the deck level lighting. If you don't have the wiring already run for deck lights the tricolor may be the quickest way to get into compliance. A note, I think Joel Potter said that at one point the deck lights were an "option" but all boats were wired for them. Check around in the forward lockers and see if you can find wires going toward the forward tooe rail.
