masthead light

I have a 2006 hunter 31 with furling mast (selden). Does anyone have an idea of what kind on bulb would be in the masthead light and where I can get it. I have been looking for days.

Sounds to me like two trips up the mast . Your owners manual may give you a clue. IMHO change it out to an LED.

To try and alleviate the two-trip method that was mentioned above, I took my wife's digital cam and zoomed in on the mast lights. I took a shot of each and then zoomed in on them to see what I was up against. I was able to match them as replacement Perko lights from West Marine. I'll buy replacement bulbs and take the up with me.

Now the steaming light is another matter. I'm going to buy several additional bulbs to try and match that one on the first try, too.

Somehow I feel that we are both doomed to a two-tripper though.
