Re: !@#$ 5200!!

Listen to Rugosa.
Those lights aren't worth replacing. They're hard to see, and being mounted where they are, are subject to constant corrosion.
Remove the lights, fill the mounting holes with epoxy, mount new lights on the pulpit.
I did this project 2-3 years ago and it was very worthwhile.

Question Re: !@#$ 5200!!

I have the same lights on my CnC, and had to replace them. The head broke off of 1or2 of the screws, the ones I could get out I took out, the others,(and I was lucky), I removed from the underside with 'vice grips'. Once they are out, I would drill and then use nuts and bolts. My, .02

Re: !@#$ 5200!!

If you have room, grind the head of the screw flat, then center punch, then drill them out. I feel for you as last year I had to replace cockpit speakers that were sealed with 5200. The blown speakers were 4" and I had to cut them out and go with 6 1/2" speakers. 5200 should be behind the counter and require a good reason to be able to purchase it.

Re: !@#$ 5200!!

ok so now you know one reason why 5200 is NOT a bedding compound, although it is quite well stated on the tubes that it is NOT a bedding compound but a glue.

donot repeat the problem by re using 5200.....use 4200 or some other truly bedding compound.

enjoy this fun time of learning...is the best way to learn your boat.....happy sails!!

Re: !@#$ 5200!!

Time to start peeking around the yard at some of the pulpit mounted lights. The Perko stern light was like $55 at West Marine. Hanging my head in shame..

Heh, when I saw $55 I got excited thinking it might be LED and might replace my existing light. Nope. 0.7A incandescent.

I'll stick to my $11, 3W stern light which lasted 30 years previously (and I'll pretend that I think a 3W incandescent is actually bright enough).

Whitecap Stern Navigation Light

I'll also add that this is an application where butyl is perfect. If a light is bed with butyl you could remove it, change the bulb, and put it back with no tools. And even if you don't' have the roll of butyl tape with you, you can probably get away just putting it back with the butyl tape that's already there.
