Default Looking for good value docking light replacement

Time to replace my docking lights ... current burnt out ones are Halogen MR8 12V 35W blue bulbs.* Having a zero luck searching online with companies I know/trust - maybe just bad Google skills.

Would appreciate a pointer towards good halogen or LED source.

Thanks in advance.*

Where are the 'docking lights' currently installed? Do you have a picture?

My docking lights are in thru hulls below the swim platform - I can access the bulbs from inside the boat and have tested the power to the lights (good) and the bulbs themselves (MR8 halogens, bad/burnt out) The image is looking to port - bar is the rudder tie bar.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Those are simply underwater lights. Your choice to use them as docking lights is certainly ingenious, but not what they are.

I'm finding hits on Amazon for "MR8 12V 35W"

Thanks Gugi ... great bulbs, but I was looking for blue - I failed to mention that in my original post. Have you used any of those companies?

Agreed, they're just underwater lights. I simply used the term docking lights because that's what they're called in electrical tab for the boat, as well as on the switch label.

I also found numerous sources on eBay and Amazon, and confess to the poor use of words in the original post.

I should have more accurately said "Would appreciate a pointer towards a known reputable dealer you have used in the past for blue halogen or LED bulbs". More accurately reflecting the desire of my post.
