This super efficient light can be used as an anchor light or as a general utility/security light. When hung from the boom or mast, the double-fresnel lens acts as an anchor light. It also has a clear lens on top, which can be used for lighting the cockpit or general area lighting.
An integral dusk-to-dawn photocell automatically shuts the lamp off at dawn, and then turns it back on when it gets dark. It works great when the boat is unattended, or for folks that don't want to worry about remembering to attend to their anchor light each night.
It has a fully sealed double o-ring lens and waterproof wire gland. It also has 15' of waterproof cable terminated by a 12V cigarette lighter plug with replaceable fuse. Kit also includes an adjustable hanger and a fuse holder for hard-wired applications. It can be wired direct, or can plug into any convenient cigarette lighter socket.
Comes standard with our low-draw 12-LED bulb for those wanting the brightest light possible while still drawing virtually no power (~0.1A).
Visibility exceeds 2nm.
OTHER GREAT USES ONBOARD Because of clear top, these make great cockpit dining lights, or general utility lights, if hung down from the boom or the T-Top using the included hanger bracket. Another great idea is to buy an inexpensive woven basket from the craft store ($0.25), and thread the wire through the center to make a shade. Makes for a cute cockpit dining light, and then is instantly converted to an eye-level anchor light by just pushing the shade up the wire and over the boom.

I love this thing! I am a full time cruiser and often work right at sunset so I am not able to turn on my lights. This is a life saver.
I use this for an anchor light on my 2 sailboats. While in the islands near Puerto Rico I had huricane Irma and Maria go right over me and my light sill works fine.........Other sailors remark how bright it is and I do not have to turn it on and off manualy as it is automatic via a sun light sensor
This is exactly what I need as a liveaboard sailor. I don't have a dawn to dusk masthead anchor light so This one hangs and shines brightly. I've now had 4 of these in two years as the seal is inadequate and it fills with water. 2 of them shorted out in a few months. When it works , it's 5 stars!
Edit from Staff:
We have recently updated the seal on the unit to address the issue that you've mentioned. We carry a 2 year warranty on all of our products and will gladly replace the unit if you'd like to return it to us for evaluation.
I have it attached to the boom on a sailboat. It is nice and bright, and a 1.5 watt solar panel (from Harbour Freight for $12.00), keeps the 12 volt battery fully charged, so it doesn't draw much juice. However, the light flickers for about 15-20 seconds when turning off mornings, and for about 10-15 seconds in the evening when turning on. I don't know if this will affect the longevity of the unit.
