Talking Anchor lights

I have a 1974 bristol 32 on the hard with the mast down, I need to replace the anchor light bulbs i don't have the originals, I need the part # and the leagle watts per bulb. And is there a led bulb that would fit. Thanks in advance!

My mast is also down, I am looking at replacing the masthead lights with LEDS. I need to replace the fixture also, as it looks old and not water tight. I am also thinking of running all new wiring in the mast as I'm sure everything is 30 years old.

You can check with Sensi-bulb or Super Bright LEDs for applicable LED bulbs. If replacing the whole fixture, there are LED combo lights (anchor and tricolor) though they are pretty pricey.

The $300.00 plus price is the main reason I have not replaced it with the LED combo lights. I am still looking for a good tri color fixture and bright enough LED's to place into it.

It only makes sense if you anchor out a lot, otherwise the savings won't add up enough to make it worthwhile.

I think with yachts we are allowed to get away with 25 W (12V) incandescent bulbs for navigation lights and 10 W for anchor lights. The Radium 10W I have in my hand here is designated
12V>10W ZP (anchor)D1303 M16x9
I think it uses the BA15d standard
You can buy LED replacement bulbs that are mounted in the same offset bayonet fitting (the vertical filament ones). My side of the pond has at www.svb.de has a couple of LED alternatives under part numbers 12602 to 12608. I'm sure there is much more available in the USA. e.g. http://www.doctorled.com/p2.htm
Snag with LEDs is that currently they are not officially accepted as navigation light bulbs. I hope that changes soon, even if they up the luminousity requirements.
