So I got this copy of 'Good Old Boat' and the guy tells me how to wire up the Tricolor with an anchor
light using diodes with existing two wires. I'm pretty excited, since last weekend while visiting the top of the mast
I discovered that my anchor
light is kind of a joke. Just a housing with enough help from gravity to make a connection for two banjo bulbs.
Anyway, I realized when I got the goodies together that the article is good for incandescent bulbs but not LEDs since they are polarity driven.
I have a DPDT switch, a new Aqua Signal combo light and some diodes.
Anyone got an idea how I can make this rig work
with just the two wires?
There is still a slim chance that there will be an extra lead hanging out in the cable, but really, how likely is that!
I will be heading up the mast
tomorrow anyway to check things out, but let me know if you have a brain storm.
thanks and happy sails!
