Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Main Mast Deck Light

If you install the LED bulb in this fixture, be careful. My original fixture came apart due to the additional weight of the LED bulb. With the cooling fins I estimate it to be 2-3 times the weight of the conventional bulb.
The old fixture was torn at the point of assembly of the top and bottom sections. I reinforced this section on the new fixture by putting large washers on either side of bigger bolts.
I believe this will fix any future problems.

Hi Bill K,
Mine bounced on the deck, scattered lots of glass before heading to Davey Jones locker.
Got a LED bulb to fit from "boat lamps.co.uk". £80 IIRC
