Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Our new Amel and a little light problem

Our Lopo is a bicolour and both sides are out.
We are about to jury rig a temporary solution so we can sail, and we'll order a new Lopo at our destination.
Hopefully we can pull the new one through ok.

One of my lopo’s failed and the replacement came with very long wires.
I found the join just inside the stainless tubing near the light - I could not figure out why it had a joint at all - I concluded just idleness on part of installer since this invites water corrosion.
I pulled the wire with mouse line attached with much less problem than I anticipated - so with new light re-threaded the greased wire from top rail down to fuse box re-connected and all has been Ok since then.
Only one lower bow nav light failed thus and when renewed they both lasted round the World.
Hope that helps
