Good afternoon,

Do you have the Hypalon Velcro Paddle holder available?

If yes, how much are they and how much would be the shipping for San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Good morning Ben,

Mine is located in the forward passage/closet, near the forward bathroom.
Where the main mast is bolted.

Here is a picture
http://nikimat.com/mast_tricolor_anchor_light_connection/mast_tricolor_anchor_light_connection_8.jpg

Or you can look at the whole process I did to trouble shot.
http://nikimat.com/mast_tricolor_anchor_light_connection_2.html

Note: for now I removed my voltage stabilizer, as it was burn and I could not find the replacement parts.
I am using LED tricolor and anchor light, but this was just changed 3 months ago, so not enough data to know if the bulb will last.

On the 54 I would guess, situated near where the mast is bolt on and the wires go through.

Good afternoon Ben,



What type of 24 Volt bulb do you use?

LED?



Do you have (adjustable) voltage-stabilizers?



Here are pictures from when I did not what they were.

Mark (SM #275 Creampuff) told me they were DXE VR200 voltage
regulator.



Wish I could help more.



Alexandre

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.

ThanksBen and
