Re: Flourescent light fixture

Defender still sells a couple. This is one is close to the one in your pic but a bit pricey.

Re: Flourescent light fixture

I also am an Alpenglow fan...we have the salon one trimmed in teak with two white and two red brightness setting. The one fixture is really well made and the LED lights dont have that bright white hospotal color. The prisimed lenses make a big differentce. The LED are also much more energy efficient.

Re: Flourescent light fixture

broke, are there no maker's marks or anything inside it? Is the builder of your boat still in business, or would other owners of the same perhaps know?

You might prefer to replace (the pair?) with LED or something else, but in the worst case you should be able to take any similar light with the same bulb type, and cannibalize the electronics module and move it over to repair your lamp in one fairly simple operation.

Re: Flourescent light fixture

If the housing and translucent cover are OK why not buy a 12 volt flourescent wander light or [ better still LED ] from Walmart auto.

Gut your old fitting and transfer the innards from wander light. Cheaper than buying a new ballast.

You may find you need a RF choke if it is noisy on the VHF.
