I'm afraid this is going to make it weak.

I'm going to take the boat out of the water soon to do a bottom job, and I need to know if I'm going to have to fix the problems on the spreaders while the boat is out of the water, or if I can just fix it at a later date while it is in the water. I don't want to have to pay to take it out of the water twice but if I'm going to have to, then I'll get the parts to fix the spreaders now rather than later.

Could you be referring to the spreader boots? What color are these bulbs?
