Catalina 22 Steaming/deck light question
Has any one upgraded their single steaming light on their mast to a steaming and deck light. I need to figure out how to replace the two conductor disconnect which seems to be imbeded in the deck next to the base of the mast. How do you get that out to replace it. Thank You Seneca Lake NY Andy

Do you have spreader lights already?

What year is your C22?

my boat is a 1984 without spreader lights

I posted an answer to your question in the gear/maint section. Be sure not to confuse the deck connector for the steaming light with the one is for the masthead anchor light. They are both 2-conductor setups. The one for the masthead is to port of the mast step. The one for the steaming light (at least on my boat) is forward of the maststep.

Steaming/deck light
I hope I am not confused. The existing is a plug (port side of mast step)with two Connecting spots that run a single light roughly halfway up the mast. I bought a combo deck and steaming light that I believe should take four wires so I can run both lights with seperate switches. Am I correct

See my post in 'gear/maintenance' from yesterday. I think it will answer your question. Keep us posted on your progress.

Fair winds,

I'm sticking one on this weekend, weather permitting.. There is no light at all on my mast as of now. I'll let you know how it turns out.
