Marinebeam does it again

Like others I'm sure, I've installed Marinebeam's innovative white/red LED cabin bulbs that switch colors simply by toggling the power off/on when the light is on. Great upgrade without changing the fixture and wiring.

Well they've done it again, this time creating a masttop bulb that is either a tri-color for offshore navigation, or an anchor light. The bulb is a standard BAY15 offset pin base that just pops in. I got one and did a writeup on my blog.

Thanks for that review and pointer to this product... always cool to see the exact product I need, which I didn't realize existed until now!

Re: Marinebeam does it again

Thats pretty cool, and would have been awesome in my last boat. Could add a tricolor (or anchor) without additional wiring.

BTW - I love their red/white interior bulbs.
