Anyone sell Hella LED nav lights? Or have them on their boat?

I've just got a set of Hella LED nav lights on Ebay.

The all round white has this on the packaging:-

2LT 959 910-011
LED All Round Lamp
2NM
White
8"(204mm) Fixed mount, black base

There's no fixed black base in the package.

Is this supposed to be supplied with it? The seller says not and that he's got 6 more without the base. He's saying I have to 'mount it myself' which is somewhat awkward as all that comes out of the bottom is a plain pole.

I started out with Hellas Nos and binned them after one season. Both had started to dissolve, one had packed up. I now have Perko LED P&S and an Aqua Signal white top light, both are more expensive, but far superior in quality.

Yeah, but at 30 quid for all 3 I couldn't say no... Besides, the A-frame has already got the right spaced holes in for them.

... three seasons here. Just the red and green actually. They had magnesium backing plates that didn't like being bolted to SS and just, well, like Mollers says, dissolved.

Nos ... here's the all round Hella white with it's black plastic base. Not sure if it's the same as your talking about:

Ideal for those who never use their VHF.

... which is also knackt.

An Icom M411 that leaks and a Ribraider aerial. What a great combination If I said they were OE fit by Ribcraft I'm you could line up a string of abuse involving leaking hatches too, I'll bet

The Icom's going back and I've a Salty John Metz aerial lined up

The RC auto-eject hatches are very reliable I gather.

TBF,I have an Icom handheld which is a decent item.

They must have changed the design-there's no external metal on the port/starboard I have here.
