Exactly right Dennis.

And if motoring, burning three or four lamps is usually not a problem. Hence the desire to go LED for a masthead tri-light and the practicality of keeping lower lights as incandescent.

You might be astonished at the number of our American cousins who race around here at night burning every navigation lamp they can, masthead tri-colour, forward steaming, red, green and after steaming light. Very common on the overnight races.

The 18 is googood as a reading light, the 21 is the master blaster at the chart table.

It's a peel and stick installation and the light switch is also peel and stick.  No wiring. Simple and perfect for the engine compartment, the remote switch is nice.  I am planning on buying more of those
