My boat is wired in 24v dc and I am always needing to replace a bulb. Now its a 15watt 24 bayonet type but it changes depending on the light fixture.

I use Bulb Town in Jacksonville FL for all my bulb needs, and I have some odd ones given having 32, 12, and 120 volt on board with a variety of bases.

http://www.bulbtown.com/

Good prices, quality and service. There are others, but this is who I settled on.

I have 32v in the big boat and I routinely check ebay to stock up. I can get em wholesale for you if you like, probably order them and have them drop shipped. The wholesaler has a regular price for one or two and then a break again at a certain number of units.

Roger,
Thank you for the offer may take you up on it sometime. I found the ones I needed at Lewis this time.

So funny, as I completely know the feeling. For whatever reason, the bulbs in the Cabo are always going out.

I ended up ordering mine from Amazon. Amazon, or one of their vendors, has a great supply of Anchor marine bulbs. I have an Amazon prime account, (costs $79 a year) and because of this they shipped to me in 2 days. I bought 20 24v bulbs all of 3 months ago.

LED Wholesalers or Superbright LED's. Just make sure you get the ones that work from 10v to 30v since they are tolerant of variable voltage levels.
