Let me back up abit, I need to replace the light assembly and bulb on my current unit, which sits atop a 24 inch pole. While cruising this year in the Sea of Cortez, I dropped my glass cover for the anchor light that came with the boat. Now it is gone and the base is loose, so I figured time to replace. I've looked at Aqua Signal, Hella, Perko and a few more with little love for their current prices.

We replaced our Perko original with an Attwood 3NM LED version. Reasonable cost, VERY bright, doesn't have an auto-on feature though.

When I say bright, I took a pic of the boat at the dock, with a streetlight in the frame behind the boat. Our anchor light in that pic is comparable in brightness to the streetlight.
