TOPIC: Rainy Day Bow Light LED Project

Rainy Day Bow Light LED Project 1 week 6 days ago #141495

Found a reproduction original type bow light for the Resorter. Well made unit, but the bulb socket was held in using a wad of black rope caulk, like the 3m window/body sealer rope caulk. Disappointing, but at least the body and lenses were well made so I decided to do an LED conversion using an Attwood unit. Some planning, test fitting and time w/ a Dremel and modeling saws.

Came out quite well, the lights are bright and the pattern is compliant. I attached the Attwood base to the light body using 5200 and the LED unit attaches to the base w/ the original screw so there is no major disassembly to replace.

Here are some pics:

Thanks all, it was a bit less effort than I anticipated as the bow light housing is fairy good sized.

Where'd you find the "reproduction original type bow light?" Nice job on the retrofit.

Hi, thanks. A & A Marine in Manistee. Nice guys, but a bit hard to get a hold of. They occasionally list them on fleaBay under Horse Head Traders.

To convert many bow lights and stern lights, we stock a LED light bulb correct for many vintage navigation lights: www.fergusonpoolemarine.com/electricalignition.html
