    Question Cockpit light

    I just replaced the cockpit light on the ROW. It cost $85!! For a light that looks no different than a headlight for an old chevy. They were also "sealed" beam.
    Has anybody installed LED deck light yet. They can't cost much more than that and might last longer.

    Is there a number on the bulb? Kit?

    I may be able to cross it to something a bit more tolerable.

    Nothing on the bulb. I checked the trash at work, already empty. I bought it at West Marine. Just a plastic case with a sealed beam that can be removed from the case.

    Just found it on their website.

    Replacement Bulb 4 x 6 427734 45903-0000 Only $77.99 USD

    This is just the bulb, which is "sold out" everywhere.

    Default I can feel your pain

    I am in the process of restoring a 1986 Sea Ray 300DB. I plan to replace all the lights with LEDs.

    Great bunch of guys, but anything with a marine application costs yea. Sometime auto parts stores have the exact same item cross referenced for 1/3rd of the price.
    There are a lot of LEDS coming on the market now designed for most any application, and that fit into almost any socket.

    This one is worth checking out: http://www.ledlight.com/?gclid=COzm_67ygJgCFQ6jagodwTRJtg

    Wow, lot of different lights. None look like deck lights. I'll have to browse the mount/socket tab and see. Honestly, most of it didn't make sense to me. Time for sum lernin.

    Thanks for the links, I'll be back in them.

    I know a lot of guys say bow lights are a waste of time, but these BLACK butted winter nights really suck for boating. It'd be nice to see the wave that you just hit. I think while I'm chasing a better deck light I'll also see if there are any decent bow lights.

    Dirt, PM coming.

    bullbuster-

    Yes, LED lighting has become quite a trend, in boating, automotive, solar and indoor app's. One word to the wise, however, although intensity is usually 'desireable', you might consider filtered LED light for night use.

    Here's an old, but possibly useful thread from another forum for you:

    Don't want to 'blind the Cap'n!'

    I'm presently looking into some solar LED's for home applications.
    I'd rather be outfitting a boat!

    Let us know how you do . .
