I ended up paying $50 for a new light that would have otherwise cost me $15o if I had bought it new. The company did offer to fix the old one for free, but I decided to go with the upgrade (Neon to LED).

OK.... you old boat had a light fixture that fizzled. Almost started a fire.
Found out you put the wrong bulb in it, but they took responsibility for it anyway offered to repair it for free, but instead gave you a nice discount on a new light.
I would say that your are lucky, and fortunate it was a alpenglow and not some Chinese junk light.
Alpenglow is a company with a excellent product, reputation and I feel from what you say that they acted in good faith at all times, going above and beyond. Not many companies will do that.
Glad your safe though and your boat is ok.
Bob

You'll like the LED better,
Nice lites, got four of them, two LED, one old red, one white. The winter here puts a few hours on them with no problems. One bulb in four years.
