Not sure what the base is but yes, Replace with only LED bulbs. standard OEM bulb is 35 watt and 2nm distance.. In my opinion a wast of battery power.
NOTE:  Take the unit apart and clean it well.  They don't make them anymore.  You can purchase a new one and replace the lense red-green but, if yours is like mine it is the base that clamps around the railing. Hope this helps!

you're talking about the bow navigation light, and he's asking about the anchor light on top of the mast :)     My anchor light uses a Festoon 43 bulb on my 90 Pearson, but beware....don't get one so bright it attracts every bug in the anchorage if you do anchor out, as it's quite a mess in the morning. My 1st one was 62 LEDs, and I've bought a 36 to replace it with this season.  Being LED, it will still be more than bright enough.

You're right though about the nav light, they don't make them anymore.  I found the last 2 that I could find in the world in England 5 years or so ago and had them delivered to me through Germany, USA and then to Canada with the help of other boaters on the net!
