Anchor Light - Getting at the Bulb

I went up the mast the other day to investigate a non-functioning anchor light. Expected the light assembly to have screws in it or to come apart in some way but apparently not. I've attached a photo. All I could find were two screws in the plate which the light was attached to (screws located near the antenna in the photo). Anyone have any ideas on taking this thing apart? This appears to be a "series 25" light (from looking on the web) but can't find any install info.

Thanks,
Mark

My AquaSignal tricolor I believe is a bayonet mount. You twist the fixture a little then lift.

On my aquasignal tricolour there's a knurled retaining clip that needs to be twisted off first. Look carefully and you'll see the arrows. The lens body then twists off the mast mount. The bulb holders pull out of the electric connecting block.

Sorry, sounds as clear as mud!

Thanks

Thanks very much for all the responses. I also emailed the company (hadn't thought to do that because it normally, in my experience, isn't possible to get a response for something like this). Got a nice note back from Aqua Signal. It does just twist off (if it's a series 25). Makes sense. So back up the mast I go...

Well I don't think anyone's answers were going to mean you didn't have to go back up the mast!

While you are up there, replace it with a LED anchor light and never need to go up there again to change a bulb again. Or at least a LED bulb for the series 25.
