Replacement LED Bulbs Make Retrofitting Incandescent Fixtures Easy
As mentioned, West Marine offers LED replacement bulbs. The bases of these bulbs are designed to fit almost any application on your boat, including double and single contact bayonets, G4, Bi-pin and festoon. LED replacements from Doctor LED and West Marine are plug-and-play replacements for your old incandescent bulbs and draw much less power.
Online and in our stores you will find high-powered flashlights, spotlights, headlamps and other portable lights. Wearing a headlamp is a great way to free both hands for the job when tackling tasks at night.
Among portable lights we also offer personal safety lights, designed to alert rescuers to the location of overboard crew.
Adding a set of underwater lights to your boat is a great way to enhance the nighttime ambiance of your boat; and for anglers, attract bait. Multi-color lights adjust to any mood and can be programmed to cycle through colors for a personal light show on the water.
