Mast lights
 
I want to replace the mast lights on my 2004 331 with LED's and one round trip in the chair. Does anyone know what size bulbs are used in the anchor, steaming/deck lights? Beneteau sent me pictures of the bulbs, but no part #s.

Pharm, as per your question, I'm asuming you want to replace the bulbs only. I'd recommend you to change the entire fixture in the case of anchor light. Fixtures designed for LEDs does have a matched lens that makes the range spec the same. I'm also assuming your steaming/deck is the combo Perko or Aquasignal, in these cases, there is no replacement for your deck light as LED are not that strong (you might have a halogen 50W). The steaming light usualy are feston ones, but suggests you might be running your engine, minimizing the advantage of low amps LED. So, I'd rather go for a new anchor light project only ....

There is an E-Bay Store called Boaters Bits that sells the LED lights you are looking for and at a reasonable price. Just do a search.

I was looking at these lights this morning. Do you know if they meet Coast Guard requirements? The ads are woefully short on information, which makes me think they may not be appropriate.

E-Mail them and they will answer any questions you have. I have purchased items from them and have been quite pleased with all. They have always answered any concerns I have had.

be careful when choosing led lights, not nearly all of them are legal...
