just found some non polarity sensitive, BA15S larger bulbs (33 SMD) and ordered a set to try in the bilge. Once they come in will report back. $9.99 for 2, there is 4 in the bilge... will make sure they work before I go for a second round... I have lots of LEDs I have not used haha in my trials. I also did my nave lights in LED, but thats a whole other argument and lessons people want to tell you on here. They are brighter then the factory for sure. both the BA15s Colored ones (red and white) for the bow, and the small festoon 360 white ones (one front and one rear) for the light on the arch, and the rear 41mm festoon on the transom.
also the light in the storage locker in the rear has one thats helpful when hooking up power. one LED in there and BAM can see everything.
which LED bulb does the white stern light on the transom take?......I am thinking of putting some really bright LED bulbs in the engine room.....even thought about using a bright LED rope light around the perimeter of the deck opening for the ER to insure I have good lighting all around with minimum shadows....
CliffA, I replaced my stern light this winter with this:
Or just swap bulbs to 41/42mm festoon LED. Fits both the arch lights, transom storage and stern.

Mittens, lights that are part of USCG mandated navigation lights (port, starboard, anchor, stern, etc) have to meet USCG standards. Just changing a bulb to LED may not meet the requirements.
As I stated I previous post, someone would come in here telling me what was legal and not. Haha. They are brighter the factory, and it’s my boat, did not ask anyone’s thoughts on it. Giving information for those that want it.
