Navigation lights

xmas2 Barry! I'm a bit lost, do you have existing Nav lights? or are you fitting new ones from scratch, either way it's not that a hard job, This diagram shows you how it's done but disregard the cable gauge and the fuses it says use, and put them on a seperate fuse (not sure what amp fuse it is offhand), you'll need to get the correct gauge wire to suit your new lights, I think if it's single cables it's 24/0.30 and if it's twin cable it's 2x 24/0.30, personaly I prefere single cables, I think Antares and a couple of others recommend the marine tinned cable,, the actual switch will need to be on your dash somewhere, you may even have a spare on there you can use, as you can see barry it's not rocket science, just work out your cable routes first, cos hiding cable is the hardest part on a boat,,,

Thanks,Frank,Yes it will be a new fitting just bought the set as you say the difficult bit will be hiding the cable runs,yes i have a spare switch on the dash i could connect to,also it could be easier to fit the stern light seperately so as to use less cable around the boat with a seperate switch.would not use the lights very often but it gives you an option if its getting dark and you over run on time.I will also need a searchlight type of lamp to see where i am going.

Barry, Is this for the boat you are going to keep in our marina???

If so and you are not in a immediate rush to fit them for a month or so I will gladly help you fit them when I'm next up to the boat for a few days. Ive got all the tools for the job in my shed on the boat. xmas4xmas4xmas4

Sorry Barry, can't help with the question, but - at the risk of hijacking your thread temporarily - I want one of these for rowing back from the pub: http://marinestore.co.uk/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=NT6250&Category_Code=caps-hats&Store_Code=mrst

Ha,Ha,very good Bruce,as you say only good for rolling back from the pub in your dinghy,

Will see you on the sunday on the photo shoot as i am only an amatuer as are most people should be good to see how the pro's do it instead of like me willy nilly.

:grin::grin::grin:

Dont think it would be much use if you are in the habit of using oars, if you face backwards then the lights are the wrong way round. xmas3
