What All Round White?

Can anybody recommend an all round white nav light for the top of the Aframe.

I haven't had much luck over the years, so looking to nail it with my next purchase rather than throwing good money after bad.

Thanks

I have an Aqua Signal top white and Perko P&S, all LEDs. I binned off the Hella items, they were returning to nature at an alarming rate.

Perko stuff is nice.

Wow, if the price tags are anything to go by they must be the best, but too much for me

I'm after something robust but won't bust my budget

Thanks for posting

I'm AquaSignal on the RIB, 25 series I think, and the larger 40/41 series on the sailing boat. All incandescent, haven't quite yet made the switch to LED.

They've all lasted pretty well, have swapped a lens on the yacht where we hit it with something, but the internals are all fine after 10+ years of cruising.

Reasonable quality, nothing outstanding, but they seem to do the job.

The later type Hella don't seem too bad-Mollers IIRC was talking about the alloy bodied Hella type. The new type are plastic.

<edit> I've got some somewhere-I didn't fit them to the Ballistic because the hole centres for mounting were just far enough out from what's on there that drilling the A-frame for them would have been near impossible.
