Default Help identifying anchor light

can anyone help me identify this anchor light on my boat?

its broken and I’d like to not have to drill new holes in my t-top so hoping to use the same manufacturer...maybe an LED replacement of the same light.

for what its worth, I have a similar light on my T top, and it was constantly coming loose. I created a base out of a starboard like material, epoxied it to the top, and put in a new light.

1) i can replace it with whatever I want, and not screw in to my top.
2) i no longer have screw holes in to a hollow t top. no water intrusion.

The light is an older style Attwood. I can tell by the base. Attwood still employs that folding base design, bu the newer all around white lights, anchor lights are LED and the bezel and lens are slightly different. The key is to know the length of the shaft on your's. They still offer an incandescent model with the same base as your lamp, if you wise to avoid LED; in either case the bezel and lens are slightly different, but will function equally as well.

The answer is they no longer make that light but I can special order the base which is the only part broken....**OR** I can order the new style LED which has a slightly larger base that will cover the old holes but require new ones.
