|New and improved bow light|
If you will remember, we lost the lends on our bow light early in the passage down from the USA. We decided to order a whole new fixture vs just replacing the lens.

It seemed if it could happen once, it could happen again and thus the new, better, encapsulated fixture - from MarineBeam. Our good friends Tim and Kim brought it down for us. As part of the Salty Dawg Rally, we get one night free at the dock at the Bitter End Yacht Club. We decided to take advantage of that this past Monday so we could install the new fixture. Call us crazy but it seemed like standing on the dock doing the installation (eye level, semi-solid ground) might be a tad easier than hanging out over the bow while on a mooring ball.
