Ok thanks, and ouch that is a rough job, although your mast sure does look good mines a bit scuff from being 30 years old lol but this winter is going to bring a lot of work and she will look like new. Thanks I will be posting up as soon as I can my installation of the new lights and which I choose to go with etc as well as updated wiring.
Thanks SD

Most of the world calls it the masthead light even though it isn't usually at the head of the mast. On power boats and ships it is mounted at the top of whatever mast or mast-like structure there is on the boat or ship. As noted earlier Americans generally call it the steaming light on sailboats, but you will still find it called a masthead light in many regulations.

I know I must be driving you guys crazy but your full of great info so thanks for the help. I want to use a company that makes masthead lights and all nav lights in led so that I can use the same company for my entire boat.
Solman: To get back to your original post - try GenuineDealz.com - Marine Electrical, Boat Wire & Cable, Custom Battery Cables for marine wire (cable). Good stuff, great prices, FREE shipping! A++ (I'm just a customer)
Good luck with your install - once the stick is on the ground!
