That looks like a standard bayonet bulb fixture... chances are that the bulb isn't rotating since it may be stuck because of corrosion. PBlaster might help free the bulb.

Defender probably does have the parts...but I'd check with an electronics shop or hardware store on the grommet, dielectric grease and bulb, since they might be a good deal less expensive... and the grommet, dielectric grease and bulb probably aren't "marine".

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.
