Re: Dangers of LED navigation lights

Old fixture, new bulb. We're right there, right now.
On the crossing from Grenada to Trinidad the port running light quit. Checking it out yesterday, we found some corrosion in the fixture, an Aqua Signal 43 series housing. The housing comes with a good gasket, but still the sea had entered and destroyed a 37.00 dollar led bulb.
I ordered the sealed led set and shall not again consider going "cheap" on something like running lights.
Anybody want to buy a green led bulb? Going once......
