I've noticed that just in the last year there has been a great increase in the number of navigation lights available in LED. Nothing like a light for every boat, but more choices than just a couple of years ago. Unfortuantely the internet seems to be about the only place to find them in any quantity, with all buying from there entails. I looked a few years ago with no satisfaction but I'd encourage you to do so for the obvious benefits.

Is it deck mounted or pulpit mounted??

For deck mounted, you can try this or this.

For pulpit mounted, you can try this:

They also make an LED replacement bulb for the pulpit mounted fixture.

Personally, I think the LED replacement bulbs and the Aqua Signal 25 series are the way to go. It is one of the least expensive way to get into LED-based navigation lights.

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.

Lopolights

Lopolights LED units are evidently very reliable because they're completely sealed against salt water problems. They look well made and they're pleasing to the eye.

They're also a bit pricey. I think Defender sells them at a decent price.

EDIT: Defender doesn't have them - or at least I couldn't find them.

Mauri Pro does have them available

YOu can buy three sets of Aquasignal 25 fixtures and LED bulbs for the price of single LOPOLight fixture.

When I replaced the bow rail on Island Breeze, we decided to go LED for the new running lights. The ones we got were from Hella. They're pricey, but they're also very well built, completely waterproof and man, do they show some light!

The AS Serier 40 will most likely fit the current bracket without any modifications, so I will get those; thank you for your recommendations.
