Since we bought our SM last year (Feb 2015) we've replaced the anchor light bulb 5 times. The boat was little used - fewer than 800 hours on engine and generator - and we've had only the usual maintenance issues which makes this issue most perplexing. We're trying to determine what could cause premature bulb failures. I've suspected a bad batch of bulbs; a surge in the electrical when running the generator; or perhaps corroded fitting causing an on/off for the bulb thereby shortening their life.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Also it would wonderful to have a source for high quality bulbs.
