I'm in Seattle, actually - getting ready for fall and winter - I'd guess your sailing season is still in full swing, eh?
What do ya mean by getting ready for winter all that means here is break out the long johns and oilskins some of the best winds are in the winter.

Edit: if you have just the metal rings, I don't believe there is a problem with the LED replacement.

Oh we're definitely still rolling, and will be throughout the fall/winter most likely. We're sailing to Blake Island this weekend for some overnight fun.
