The bulb on my Aqua Signal Series 41 red/green nav light burned out this weekend. I was planning on upgrading to LEDs over the winter, but now is looking like a better time for that. The Aqua Signal Series 43 is supposed to be a direct replacement, but it is $299 at Defender as compared to $181 for the Hella R/G combo light.
I hope, that at the minimum, staying with Aqua Signal I get mounting hole compatibility. Has anyone seen the two together to understand if the premium for the Aqua Signal is justified at all?
I'd appreciate any experience with what is involved in replacing a Series 41 with a Series 43, the Hella equivalent, or some other brand.
