Try Ebay. 2 lots of LEDs bought from HK,arrived fast, cheap (nothing like boat shops), and worked. Total draw of LED 5 replacements of 25W incandescents is less than 1 old incandescent.
There are many areas on a boat where you can keep an old item ticking along until it really has to be replaced. But LEDs are a "no brainer" with immediate benefits for electrical loading.
Sunvale, I figured the lights in the heads are not on long enough to be a big issue for LED replacement.
