Running lights Replacement bulbs

Going shopping tomorrow before going out sailing.

It seems almost all my running lights are blown out. (And have needed them the last few weeks.)

Does anyone know, offhand, what the replacement bulbs are - specifically bow lights? Thread? Bayonet? Diameter? Wattage?

Assuming you have the original Aquasignal Series 20 side lights and stern light, those are the bulbs. The masthead (steaming) light uses a festoon bulb, but I don’t remember who made it or what the wattage is.

Just FYI, they don’t make the stern light any more, at least not the deck mounted style. Mine got so clouded that I just replaced bow and stern with some other brand. Muuuuuch better now.

Thanks. Bought something that looked right. We'll see if they fit.

I bought some SUPER BRIGHT led bulbs (42mm tube/with metal ends) on Wish .com for about $2 each shipped.
Some had a bunch of LEDS another set had a LED filament, which was better if you need 360' coverage.
About 5 times brighter than original bulbs
I also replaced the interior bulbs (wish . com again... pack of 6 for like $10 shipped)

They also use MUCH less power, and for the interior ones, produce little to no heat.

If you order now.. and your winterizing.. you can tolerate a few month delay from Wish... if not they are more $$$$$ in USA /Canada
