all round white

anyone know of a good folding pole light for top of the "A" frame? Cos I've broken another one! The boat does do well driven hard into a sea but bits tend to fall off (aerial, masthead light, crew-well not yet!). What I need is a folding all round white pole light around 30cm. to keep the seperation distance right (min 1m vertical twixt white and the red and green)and it needs to be folded for storage after every trip. We have one which is probably a lalizas on one of the boats but it needs to be screwed up really tight to prevent droop after a short time and eventually we end up with a horizontal - naw I dont really want to go there do I! Doesnt matter on that boat as it don't need to be folded each trip and has basically set in that position with the aid of some silicon. Any suggestions - but, just to pre-empt Mr Manning, not for those medications I keep getting e mails for!

Still need a "wavelength proof" light for m'boat though.

At your age the only benefit of Viagra would be to stop you rolling out of bed in the middle of the night.

Why not go for a 'fixed' white pole light and adapt it to screw into a stainless steel aerial ratchet base:

Pole Light

Just literally been down at the boat to remove one of these http://www.marinescene.co.uk/product...te-pole-light- as it snapped at the braket!

I think this is what I'm going to go for http://www.marinescene.co.uk/view/18...as-pole-lights . I liked the taller light but don't think it's realistic in a RIB..

If you find a better option pls let me know

Al.
