Re: P26 combination mast/deck light

Thank you for the replies. Between the ForeSpar, the AAA, the Aqua Signal, and the Hella I found with your help, it seems as if the Hella is the only one getting pretty much universally good reviews. Folks have mentioned the poor attachment of the upper cover on the ForeSpar and the lack of weather protections on the AquaSignal and AAA, so I've ordered a Hella.

I realize that none are LED lights as they come from the factory, and I understand and appreciate the comment re/ the fact that the bow/steaming light will only be used when the engine's running anyway. My P26 has an outboard 8hp Johnson that I'm in the process of renovating and I don't know for sure that the charging circuit works on it, so I want to be prepared. A $15 LED bulb is a lot cheaper than the replacement parts necessary to get the charging circuit to work. Eventually, of course, I'll get EVERYTHING working as it should. Right now, I just want to get out and learn to sail.

Thanks again!

Barry
