Re: Dangers of LED navigation lights

M S,
Thanks! That's what I was hoping to hear. The LED steaming light is more bout reliability, and not having to change bulbs. With a Yanmar YSM 12 running, the vibration stress on a tiny tungsten wire would seem to limit bulb life. I'm trying to get to a point where its all preventive maintenance rather than fixing 38 year old worn out stuff.
As a side note any opinion on Bury flex vs. LMR 400 for VHF co-ax? Based on your series, I started looking at the LMR for antenna wire. The bury flex seems to have about the same "numbers" but is designed for a harsh environment ie, underground.
Thanks again for the advice, and all the help you've given over the years.
Lou
