Mast Light Recommendations Please

A WARNING FIRST! Due to the really horrible weather the intercoastal in Florida has really high waters in the intercoastal, so that most bridges are at 63' or less in clearence. We had a bad experience in the bridge just south of Fernandina Beach, no height boards on the south bound side, and it took off our wind indicator and mast light. We are currently in Dayton Beach, stopped because the clearance under the bridges (there are four) is under 63'. At any rate, we need to replace the light and would appreciate any website referrals for a light that is a tri-color/anchor/strobe. I have looked on line and can't seem to locate one, but perhaps they were separate fixtures, as they came with my boat and I never dealt with them until now. Any suggetions?

Any indication of the manufacturer or pictures? No sense in ripping the whole thing out if there are replacement parts available. If you do need to do a complete replacement then go with LED's

I chose the Aquasignal. I also purchased LED bulbs for it, that way if and/or when the led's crap out I can just put an incandescent bulb in until a replacement LED can be found.

I went with OGM (orcagreenmarine) LED Tri light/anchor with photodiode & strobe. Very happy with it, and reasonable price I thought, the selector switch is separate.
