Why don't you buy LED tape instead. And mount on the stainless steel construction for your cockpit cover. 
Mount a 12V outlet acces, and connect the LED tape there. Ypu can also add a dimmer to it so you can alter the strenght of the light.

We have mounted a 12V outlet access just beside the speakers on the starbord side. Very use to more things then the LED lights.
Since we have equipped Lady Annila with a permanent roof over the cockpit, we hade our led tape mounted in a different way. But before we built the roof, we used this 12V access to the LED-lights.

We found the same problem and think it had to due with the charging of the batteries which took the voltage above 28V. We have found these LED spotlights work well and have had them for 3years and no problems. They are rated 9V - 30V and are really bright. They fit in the same receptacle that houses the old GE light bulb.

Good morning Kent & Eric,

Just for info:
For the cockpit I use the 13 Watt 60 degree and it is extremely bright.
It is excellent for “work”, but too much for dinner. I might add a little filter to make it more romantic.
So for dinner I simply use the dodger light (which I replace with LED).

I have the same (13 Watt 60 degree) for the main but have not installed yet, so can’t give an opinion if the angle is too wide, etc.
Will try to do install it this coming week.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Kent,Based upon your
description I guess you used the 13 watt units. 30 degree
for the foredeck and 60 degrees for the
cockpit.That is the only bulb
that comes in 2 angles.Fair

Supermaramu Mizzen Spotlight    I'm not on the boat for a
few weeks, but I have the model numbers for the mast-mounted
deck and cockpit lights.  The cockpit lite has a wider beam
(more like a flood) and the forward deck lite has a
narrower beam (more of a spot light).I still have a couple of
spares of incandescent bulbs for these, but want to switch
to LEDs when those are gone.  The clips that hold the bulbs
in on these fixtures have failed, and they are riveted to
the masts.  I found a PVC fitting that slides perfectly
into the fixture, holds the bulb securely.  I drilled three
holes thru the fixtures and thru the 1" ring of PVC and
secured them with small stainless bolts and lock nuts.
 Looks great and saved me having to replace the
fixtures.

Mizzen Spotlight  
Hi everyone,
  As with most SM's ( and maybe 54s ?) I have
spotlights on my main and mizzen
masts. The bulbs
are both Sealed Beam, GE 4505 28v
50w.I rarely use
these lights. In 14 years I have not changed the bulb on the
main ....but the mizzen bulb burns out at the least use. I
must have replaced 5 or 6, and they are a crazy
price.Has anyone
else experienced this issue? Any suggestions as to the
cause?  As they are designed for aircraft and rated at 28v
they should be easily rugged enough .It defies logic to
think that for that bulb alone there is somehow more than 28
volts being delivered.  Has anyone
found an LED bulb that fits the same holder
? Ian and
Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, Corfu,
Greece
