I keep on board a spotlight with a red-green lense built on for just this purpose. It is very dependent on having a crew member who can sit at the bow with it in his/her hand, but it would do in such a case.

I suppose my flashlight pointed aft would be the stern light.

There are very few issues that can't be solved with duct tape. :D :D :D
