This one is baffling me. Before I put up the flag and get an electrician involved I want to run it by everyone to see if it triggers any memories.
My boat (which I do love) has suddenly stopped supporting my night time activities as both the anchor well light and navigation lights have stopped working.
Behaviour is if I turn the anchor light switch on, the switch lights up but the anchor well light doesn’t. If I turn on the navigation lights the anchor light switch goes out and the navigation light switch does not light up and the lights stay dark.
I have checked the switches and navigation light end and confirm that I get the voltage to the switches and to the anchor light. When I turn the navigation light switch though I lose the voltage reading and I never get the forward run switches getting a voltage reading.
The only thing I can think is maybe the navigation light has either blown or contacts are corroded. Checking the actual navigation light is my last thing to do before I give up. Why I think this maybe the case is that the anchor well light and navigation lights are companion so the anchor light does not come on unless the navigation lights are on.
I have to say that getting into the wiring in the anchor well is not fun a for a fat fingered guy like me but everything seemed clean in there. Double checked in case i had disconnected something accidentally ��
Any thoughts would be hugely appreciated
