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.

Great boat light and uses no amps at all. Only thing I would change is a better mounting bracket.
I use this light plugged in to a 12 volt socket in my anchor locker, wired to the panel anchor light switch. I use a small halyard to get it up about 10 feet above the bow foredeck. When returning to boat at night, we know exactly where our boat is. It turns on at dusk and off at dawn... saves battery power and has an LED lamp inside. I recommend it. Russ
