Cross Utilization

A fun little challenge - I have discovered that I quite enjoy hunting for gear to outfit s/v Honey Ryder. I keep an open mind and look in places other than "marine chandleries." Army surplus store, RV shop, auto canvas shop, various industrial businesses, etc...
Our red light at the nav station has shorted out and needs to be completely replaced. I found this clip-on one at a bike shop. AND it has a solar and USB charger. Bonus!
*This is not to say that we don't buy proper gear where it is vital. So you will NOT find any big box hardware store bargin bin line on s/v Honey Ryder. No Way! Hardware store, none marine blocks - no again.
