The interior lights are G4 Halogens, so they're not a problem.

The Spreader lights are a sealed bulb unit, so you can't do much about them.

The others may or may not be able to use replacement bulbs like the ones from DR. LED.

Personally, I'd swap the fixtures out with Aquasignal Series 25 or 40 ones, depending on the size of the boat, and use the DR. LED bulbs made for them. It's one of the least expensive ways to get all LED navigation lighting.

The forward deck mast light is here

Stern light here

Red Green Nav lights by Hella here (I have seen these, they look like a glass tube with two conical metal extremities).

My interior lights on the ones outside the liner ans embeded say use G4 10 W bulbs (whatever that means)

I think the masthead light )we call it presence light, only used when anchored) is from Hella.

That is it...can you please recommend bulbs for these? Thanks

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.
