Re: Which tricolour/anchor light should I buy?

I have replaced all my nav lights (aqua marine) with lalizas LEDs. I still need to get up the mast to replace my anchor light with a tri and anchor light. It's sitting waiting to be done.

Re: Which tricolour/anchor light should I buy?

Well, it's done.

I eventually decided on a Nasa LED tricolour up top and a separate anchor light which I shall plug in and hang from the ensign becket on the backstay when needed. I decided on this partly because I reckon 10m up in the air is not the best place for an anchor light and partly on cost.

A couple of years ago I we were coming into Lamlash Harbour on Arran at about midnight and looking for a mooring buoy. We didn't notice an anchored boat until we were very close. It had an anchor light on at the top of the mast but it was lost in the shore lights from a distance and well above our eyeline when we got close. If it looks like I shall be anchoring in open roadsteads I might think again

I've also fitted a Lalizas incandescent steaming light, and side and stern lights are new LED units I bought at a boat jumble for a fiver each. I've enhanced the seals on these.

Experience is that which would have been of the most use five minutes before you gained it.
