Anchor Light

Jul 13, 2018 | Technical

Vic and Kay on board Liffey have adapted a solar garden light from the Warehouse to use an anchor light. The light sits in the rod holder mounted on the pushpit. Since they now have an outboard an extension is being made to lift the light up high enough. The advantage with this set up is it won’t run the boat battery flat and the light switches on at night and off in the morning automatically. The light has a small battery that charges up during the day using a solar panel built into the light. The cost of the light is less than $20. An additional advantage is you don’t have to climb the mast to change the bulb.
