    Anchored vessels and vessels aground
    (a). A vessel at anchor shall exhibit where it can best be seen:
    (i). in the fore part, an all-round white light or one ball;
    (ii). at or near the stern and at a lower level than the light prescribed in subparagraph (i), an all-round white light.
    (b). A vessel of less than 50 metres in length may exhibit an all-round white light where it can best be seen instead of
    the lights prescribed in paragraph (a) of this Rule.
    (c). A vessel at anchor may, and a vessel of 100 metres and more in length, shall also use the available working or
    equivalent lights to illuminate her decks.

    Based on the Colregs you are required to exhibit an all-round white light where it can be seen, you "may" use available working or equivalent lights to illuminate her decks. Whether flashing lights (white or coloured) fit the bill of working or equivalent lights is debatable.

    There is a quite a history of 'money' causing accidents by ignoring the rules and no recourse for the victims, so it does look like having deck lights illuminating the boat from the spreaders could be the best idea. Avoiding the hassle has to be better than dealing with the perps.
