I had my aquasignal tricolor and strobe rebuilt by a fellow in Florida with LED’S.

Good morning Mark,

Sorry been late reading the post.
I end up purchasing a different Aqua Signal light than yours.
I have one with traditional light, which I will replace with LED.
But thanks for the update.

 I hope you haven’t purchased this
yet. Our second unit inside of 6 months has now failed. The
anchor light works. The tri-color unit lights up when first
powered on and after about 2 seconds shuts off. I haven’t
pulled the unit from the mast top yet. But, I do have
voltage going to the connections at bottom of the
mast.  I will be contacting Aqua-Signal for
a warranty replacement, again. This unit is really a piece
of crap. It is scary to think our safety is dependent on a
product/company with such poor QA standards.

55632  Hi Alexandre,
 I hope you are doing well. I see you
are in the Bahamas. We are heading there in a few days. I
hope we can meet. We will be going at it backwards and
working our way from North to South.
 When we purchased Cream Puff, it had
the original Guest tri-color fitting. It failed after 15
years of being in the sun. When I removed it the unit
crumbled in my hands. It was amazing it still lit up. It was
also very corroded inside. We searched all over for a
comparable fitting but I believe Guest is no longer making
lights.  We replaced the unit with one  I
purchased from Defender: mast-top tri-color w/Anchor light
Series 34 LED model 34706-7 http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?path=-1%7C65136%7C2312550%7C2312561&id=2113738 
This was a recommendation from Bill Rouse. I believe Amel
switch to these units on later models when they installed
the LED.  The unit will take 12 or 24 v. I used
the existing wiring and just made the 3 connections. I cut
back the wire to ensure I had a new clean connection. I had
to install a new base for the new fixture. It involved
drilling new holes in the mast top and tapping the holes for
stainless steel screws (I purchased separately). At the top
of the mast, there is a common neg and a pos for the anchor
light and a pos for the tri-color. These wires are connected
to the new base and the light unit plugs into the
base.  The unit I purchased failed within a
couple of months. Aqua-signal replaced it and even paid
shipping for the return of the old unit. So far, the
replacement has been trouble free.
 Hope this
helps.  With best
regards,  Mark  Super Maramu
