Re: Dangers of LED navigation lights

I'm sure that Hamilton Marine would much rather a customer buy a $100 fixture instead of a $10 LED array. The fact is the old fixture/new "bulb" combo is only "illegal" IF it doesn't meet the COLREG specifications. Those specs are pretty broad (see my post above), and consequently not too difficult to meet (given a little common sense).
