Poor Quality Control - AqualSignal Bow Light
AqualSignal Series 41 Bow Light
You may remember that I replaced the bow light on Reboot at Masonboro Yacht Club. It didn't work, but subsequently I got it working. Of course it stopped working again. After a bit of playing with it I discovered that the tabs that are intended to make the electrical connection to the light bulb were not touching the light bulb. Since the socket and the light bulb came as a single purchase I was quite annoyed. I did manage to bend the tabs a little bit to get some tension on the light. Its working - for now.
