Mast Headlight bulb

Post by philipl »

Does anyone know the type of bulb used in a masthead light on an 1990 F38. I changed it once before and noticed that it was a low profile bulb. The one I installed was standard and touched the top of the glass bulb ( and burned out pretty quick, as a result).

Not sure of the bulb size but the better thing to do is replace with an LED - optimally a tri-color mast head light which is awesome when sailing at night

Good idea. Thank you. Mast is coming out this winter so I will get a chance to do that.
