Its not new, but beware. They make many LED lights now that are not suited for the job.

Re: LED lights for suckers

I especially like this:

"All light fixtures from 9 Volts and work support a maximum of 14 Volts. Its rated voltage is 12 Volts."

Seeing as most every boat out there charges at above 14V......... There is a reason it is called "Flea Bay"...

Wow!

Taking something that's well used and adding some spare parts, I'm surprised the guy is asking $80 bucks for the thing.

Best just to get the real thing.
