Anchor light installation (Part 2)

  • Boat Type: Boat Type

Once the drill was at the bottom of the mast, I attached the wires and an additional pull-cord for future use with electrical tape and pulled them to the top. After connecting and mounting the new LED anchor light I replaced the motoring light also with a LED bulb. Since I'm going to use reversed polarity to switch the anchor or motoring light I protected both LED-assemblies with an additional blocking diode (3A Radio Shack) against reversed current and connected everything at the bottom of the mast.
