Not used this site yet, but planning to once I get an A-frame made:

http://www.boatshop.com.au/category2_1.htm

Shipped from Oz for $15 Oz dollars (about £6.50) and only about £20 for both the port and starboard. VAT and import should be minimal on this amount (£5 maybe)

I think you have to go through the nearest dealer or I can get them for you and post them up to you if you like?

Quite why some people charge so much for LED lights is beyond me - those Australian prices are much more sensible!!!

I fitted my boat with Hella LED navigation lights which are made in New Zealand

Used them in high density fog recently as driving across mountain roads on my way from Akureyri (north coast) to Reykjavik

Possibly not - the British lights are incredibly well engineered works of art - the problem is do we really NEED incredibly well engineered works of art just to light up our boats???

Let us know how you get on with that stuff - It's probably not CE approved so we won't be fitting it though!

It may well be CE marked, as some of the same products appear here on the ASAP site:
