These show red or white depending on how fast you toggle the on/off switch - pretty cool.
I put a couple of those at the Nav station. They are nice. I also bought a red-white touch sensitive 18" flex light. Also a nice addition.

Re: Marine Beam LED's Outstanding

Okay, enough of the mush, but seriously, I went out surfing for replacement nav lights and found these where I had not seen them before. I'm excited about the sealed nav lights. After reading some of the lit on the site, then getting a reply email on a Friday at 8pm to a question, I had to order all new lights. Then, I started looking at what others had said and found this thread and think that I might have stumbled upon some really (finally) nice replacement lights. Since I started sailing in 1988, NO ONE has ever had lights that worked consistently, and it was always due to corrosion, or impacts, etc. Sealed has to be a big step forward, impact resistance is another, and not-fragile to voltage is a big third. I had lightening take out the bebi bulbs I had soldered in, thanks to this post, now I really look forward to putting these puppies on in Oct, gotta look at them until them. In summary, I'm not an engineer, but keeping up with led techno over the last 5 years, the specs on these are spot on from what I can tell, and I recommend watching the video of the melting bulb on their site. Yea, entertaining to say the least. s/v Renasci
