Navigation Lights

Anybody know a supplier for some really dinky cats-eye type navigation lights rather than the dumpy current powerboat ones on offer

There are some reccessed nav lights on e-bay.

Not sure about the quality, may be made of a conflake packet and monkey muck alloy!

Tend to agree with you - a good idea badly executed!

Still at least you know somebody makes them, just a matter of finding some good ones now.

I use them on quiet a few boats as I like the nav lights to be recessed if possible. I think they are a very good product for the money.

Also fitted to the console of my RIB. (units also come in black plastic)
