    Hey all!

    I have a 6-inch Danforth Constellation compass and need a new bulb (or to stock several) for it as it has burned out. The bulb is a screw type that is about an inch long and has J487 stamped on it. My vessel is a 1973 Roamer 60-ft aluminum hull with enclosed aft Saloon.

    Does ANYONE know where I can get my hands on this bulb?

    Thanks - The Triton

    If you can't find a 32 volt bulb. Usually a 28 volt bulb will last if you use 1/2 the wattage of the 32 volt bulb.

    Thanks Capt J

    I was able to order several from Viking Optics - but the information never hurts to have. I appreciate the assistance!
