When we took possession of Eolian, these old navigation lites mounted on the hull sides did not work. I spent some time working with them, but finally decided that even if I was able to resurrect them, they would never pass muster with today's ColRegs.
So I installed a modern light (well, modern for that era - now everything is LED powered) from Aqua Signal on the bow pulpit.
(In the picture, I had yet to install the small clips that hold the wire to the inside of the bulwark, because we were in the midst of doing the brightwork.)
I suppose now I'll have to do a nav lite upgrade upgrade - to an LED unit.
