    Bulb question, maybe the easiest of the day?

    The short story is I need a new bulb for the front red/green lamp. Length and diameter has to be just right to fit. It's a size that I can't find here in Denmark, neither in general auto parts, nor at my local marine shop. Any online suggestions?
    Tip to tip it's 29mm, diameter of critical metal ends is 7mm

      They are called festoon bulbs.

        31mm Festoon is a standard size. It's a spring fit.

            I've tried 2 brands of LED festoon bulbs in those light and none last longer than a few months. The elements die one by one until none of them light up on the bulb. Those lights are not water tight and the LEDs I've tried don't like water. Maybe they make water proof versions, but I switched back to the regular incandesant lights which aren't as sensitve to a little moisture.
