Bow nav light

I bought a Perko Stealth light because it was small. The construction seems to be sturdy and it came with a rubber seal gasket.
I took a small piece of 9mm plywood and built a base for it. I sanded the base so that the bottom ply was sanded away at the center. This fits the curve pretty well.

It does have leads and 9/16" hole out the bottom. I'll have to figure out exactly where to run that through the deck.

  1. Jeff - probably you've already thought of this, but I would expect your ply base would need a significant taper front to back also, so that the nav light will end up horizontal, rather than pointing up in the air. What do you think? -- Dave
