Perko makes a LED anchor light with a photo sensor in the light fixture. Turns the anchor light off at daybreak. Draws next to no wattage.

I am sure Perko or Aqua Signal (Sailnet) have something similar but Sealite has a website:

In my latest project I put a white LED at the nav station. Amazing, you can leave it on for days!!

Hope this helps.

I think he''s referring to the Perko 1340 which has a 2 mile range, a 100,000 hour life and draws minimal current (less than a watt as a I recall). It was introduced last year and I bought one. The output is similar to a 5 or 10 watt incandescant light, and it has a distinctive blue cast, which makes it easy to find your boat in the anchorage (until everyone else buys one). There is no automatic off capability during the day, but one is not really needed, given the low current draw.

I couldn''t find online at the Perko web site, which seems to have a 1999 catalog, or on the Sailnet web site (they don''t seem to carry Perko), but you''ll find in the 2003 West Marine catalog on page 591.
