As for converting Candelas to Lumens... look here.

Be aware, just because a bulb is the same or greater brightness, doesn't mean that it will be able to satisfy COLREGs if used in an application or fixture it wasn't originally designed for. This is important if you get involved in a collision and get sued... If you want an LED anchor light or tri-color, I think you're just better off, biting the bullet, and buying one that is USCG approved.

AFAIK, there isn't a LED bulb or array made right now, that is approved for use in an older incandescent navigation light fixture that will meet COLREGs approval.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
