Robust all round white light

I've seemed to have knocked off my mast mounted all round white light last weekend (probably a tree).

Anyone know where I can get a solidly built all stainless jobby that'll just bolt into place?

What I had was one of these

How did you manage to run into a tree out at sea? I think you need a new chartplotter...



Ah, my coat, thank you

Maybe he was on a MedEvac? I understand that sitting beneath a tree is a Specific for Mal de Mer

In the firth of Clyde, on more than one occasion I have drawn up quick to examine a strange floating obstruction, to discover on one, that it was some upstanding branches, the rest of which .. submerged was a complete tree about 50 foot long

I've got a new chartplotter....Just need to fit it and get some charts

Just to clarify it was a low flying tree or a high flying RIB, sat on the back of the trailer

What I might do is to buy a replacement and fabricate a stainless guard that'll go over the top of the light.

If you break your white off on a submerged tree you have made another pretty fundamental cock up - the light should be pointing up as a general rule

Well for my thoughts, I think you're all "Bark"ing up the wrong tree you bunch of sap sucking, twiglet munching, trunk wearing RIBbers
