Anchor light Bulb type?

I've a friend that's going up the mast for me this week.. (if it stops raining) My boat is an 82 O 30 and I'd like to know if at all possible which bulb it would be. I'm going with led, I think it may be the festoon type. but I don't know. Any help would be appreciated!

Hey Denise,

I don't KNOW, but I believe that you are right.

My suggestion, however, is that you buy one of these - - in case the light goes out again. LEDs are very susceptible to damage from lightning...

Bummer! the lens is missing and the bulb was broken in the socket. Going to just get a new fixture for next time.
