OGM Tricolor Light
Hello mrmisc, sorry to hear of the problem. Thatís an odd situation since their customer service has been great in the past. Donít give up. Maybe something else is happening on their end. Once you connect, Iíd be surprised if you do not end up with a good working Tricolor.

OGM Tricolor--- Be Warned
My friend and I both have 37' boats (Tartan & C&C) . We purchased the OGM Tricolor lights and have been duped. Both are not working properly. I actually used mine twice before failing. I suspected a bad wiring connection near the mast so I waited until this winter when the rig was down to investigate. I have repeatedly contacted them leaving messages and emails. Note it wasn't the wiring!!! No reply ever... My friend had the same luck. Just try and call them before buying anything. They are scoundrels. He bought a light from Bebi electronics and I'm shopping for a replacement now. How can we tolerate a $500 light plus labor and it works twice. These guys should be ashamed of the junk they sell and the marine industry shoundn't tolerate it.

If the splice is done properly, with a good crimp and adhesive heat shrink it will be fine. All lights and some other equipment come with a pigtail. I doubt the manufacturer can help you.
See this link for the how-to of crimps that are trouble free.

I'm still hoping someone has tried the Signal Mate. It's substantially cheaper, draws less current and has a much better warranty than the others I've looked at. Of course, I know nothing about it's quality.

Looking to Repair Orca Masthead Nav Lights
I installed a masthead Tricolor 2 seasons ago and I am having trouble. It's most likely the the splice near the top of the mast. It came with a short pigtail and I was never happy with the splice. I'm interested in purchasing a continuous cable from the bottom of the unit from Orca or finding a manufacturer to fab the cable. I've left 1 email and 2 voice messages for Orca over the past several weeks and received no response. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help.

|hal58||I purchased the OGM tri-color and I love it! Appears to be very well made. I had a couple of questions last year and their customer service was great. I know others that have it as well and so far all good news.|

The SignalMate looks like a good product, and seems reasonably priced, but I have no experience with it. I've had an OGM tri-anchor on my boat since 2006.
