Not a lot of tripping or other progress to report lately… lots of work calls, it’s gray here, and one of the dogs hasn’t been feeling well. But I did find time to replace the original bow light, which had succumbed to corrosion in such a way that the inside was almost completely gone, and of course, not functioning. With the new one in place the running lights are ready to go.

Still undecided about the stern all around light. As installed, there is no switch; when it’s plugged in to the socket, it turns on. Consequently the wiring is very simple, with just an inline fuse and a direct connection to the nearby battery. It should be hard to forget to leave it on or off inappropriately. It’s just that it’s not terribly convenient. But then how often is it used anyway?
