Light height on Boat?

Going Muskie fishing tonight and I had to do some repairs to my boat. Any ideas on how high the navigation white light pole in the back needs to be?

Stern light needs to be higher than the highest point of the boat visible 360 degree.

Lots of good info on the PFBC pages. http://fishandboat.com/boatcrs/03boa...2_09_night.htm I don't believe there is a set hight other than must be visible 360 degrees(stern). Also pay attention to when it is "offically" sunset or any other low light conditions.
