Re: Port side Front Navigation Light unreliable

Greetings - both my bow lights were powered through the stbd side - had to replace the port fixture since it had not been properly sealed at some point - so I would not be surprised they are in series like that and may have corroded.  The new LED fixture works great.  Good luck!

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Port side Front Navigation Light unreliable

Greetings!
Our port side navigation light has been unreliable since years. We switched to LED two month ago. It worked fine while in port. It soon failed underway and after arrival in Antigua it still doesn't work.
In the port side bow locker I see two cables going in the bottom of the stanchion. Only one cable comes out to the navigation light.
Did AMEL splice the cable together in a Y shape in the stanchion such that the second cable would feed the starboard navigation light?
I assume the one cable comes in from the 24 V panel switch. One cable goes over to starboard and the splice feeds the port side light? Has anyone reworked this setup already?
I still have to climb into the starboard locker to follow the second cable.
