I did not see the bulbs on the website.

Hi Ann-Sophie
Would you please comment on the characteristics of the light in your boat
since switching to LEDs.
- are the bulbs as bright?
- is the color of the light pleasing or stark
- is the light directional or flood like?
thanks , Gary

Hi Richard

your two first issiues I hope some one else can help you with. We have
also changed to LED almost every where in the boat. We bought ours from
www.sailorssolution.com I can realy recommend them, very service minded and
by now they know all about electricity on an Amel

Gentlemen, (and Ladies)

I have purchased "Popeye", Amel Maramu Hull 91 from Bill Klein. She is
currently lying in the Anclote River, Tarpon Springs in Florida.

So now instead of Bill's good advice, you are getting my not so informed
questions. Any help would be appreciated.

1. I need to replace the bulb in the cockpit/hardtop light. I have
removed the two small screws from the glass, but despite prising and
twisting have got no further. This may be another intelligence test I just

2. I will be pulling the masts to replace the (original) standing
rigging. Where does one disconnect the electrical connection to the radar at
the base of the mizzen mast? I have looked in the aft part of the engine
compartment but can't see if and where the tube from the base of the mast
then goes, and there appears to be no access from the aft head area. Also,
is there any magic involved with the main mast, apart from disconnecting the
wires in the overhead breaker panel outside the for'd head?

3. Does anyone know a US source for the (very) small propane gas
cylinders used on the Maramu?

4. I have replaced all of the interior light bulbs with LEDs, and was
looking to replace those in the nav, anchor and steaming lights as well, for
the current saving. The Australian source I used does not have 22mm base
bulbs, only 15mm. Does anyone know of a US or European source for such LEDs?
