    I am trying to replace the cockpit and anchor light bulbs in a 2002 380DA to LED's. In searching websites, I can't seem to determine which size I need. I know they are festoon style bulbs. The ones that I removed are Perko and the only numbers on them are #70-0 for the cockpit, and 12v10wFIG.71 for the anchor light. Does anyone know what sizes I need, or know hwere I can check to get the correct sizes?

    I don't know if I would use LEDs as they tend to be directional and festoon type bulbs are meant to be omnidirectional.

    I'd be REALLY careful about replacing your navigation light bulbs with LEDS as they may not meet the USCG requirements for visiblity, LEDS are typically not as bright as their incandescent counterparts. There's a reason LED nav lights cost big bucks.

    a white, red, green or yellow all-round light, 2 miles.
    a special flashing light, 2 miles. [Inld]

    I agree stay away from LEDs on Nav lights and Anchor lights. Go for it on interior lights.
