Bow Light Identification help

654 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  HelthInsXpert
Trying to replace the bow lights in my 2014 Marquesa. I ordered Livorsi lights (thinking they were 'OEM') but when I pulled the existing lights they are slightly oval instead of round behind the mounting plate.

They're the same lights that are in my Waterman and they seem slightly brighter. Anybody know what lights these are? (trying to ID the lights with the GREEN DOT in the pics below)

Do you have any pictures of the front? Could be made by sea-dog but it's hard to tell.
When one of mine went out on my 2012 Vantage, I called East Cape and they told me it was a Livorsi light. When light arrived from Livorsi, I had the same problem as you. I think Livorsi just changed their design over the years. I just used a fiberglass file to round out the hole. Pretty easy fix.
Take a deep breath - then contact Hells Bay directly, ask for their parts department, let them know the year model of your skiff and politely ask who made those lights - and the part number, if any... Unless that outfit is out of business you can bet they're still ordering from them (and might even have the part(s) you're needing... Probably a bit more money - but if you're looking for the exact replacement someone there will know exactly what you need (and where to get it...).

I agree with the above comments that HB should be able to tell you exactly what was used in the boat, perhaps contact them to see if they have any new old stock that will fit. Also gotta say I'm surprised HB didn't use heat shrink connectors although they look like they survived okay.
The round hole lights are Hardins. (Hardin Marine - Hardin Marine Stainless Steel LED Navigation Lights (Pair)).
Stick with the Livorsi lights so you will not have to change them out every three years. You will have to shape the hole with a file. Taco Marine makes LED's as well but are a little more involved in the installation.

Looks like Livorsi makes two different lights LEDNL2 and LEDNL3

Livorsi changed the design ~2018, give them a call and they will set you up.
Interesting. I think you guys nailed it. Looks like it's an old style Livorsi. I was able to install the new one with very minimal cutting, it just doesn't seem as bright.
