Last spring, I purchased an LED anchor replacement bulb from Imtra. I spent a lot of time trying to determine what base design I had in the Hella 2492 fixture, and I thought I had got it right.
When we tried to swap the bulb out with the OEM incandescent, the bayonet socket on the bulb had offset pins, and the fixture called for in-series pins. I went to Imtra to get the right bulb, but they do not make it in cool white, so they kindly allowed me to return the bulb for a refund, even though the bulb base was dented during the attempted install and the bulb had to be scrapped.

I found your list of sailing apps for iPads and iPhones very useful (PS, April 2012). There were a couple that I hadn’t heard of. One more that I have found useful is Wind Meter. It tells you the wind speed, and I have found it quite accurate. I believe that it works by the sound of the wind blowing in the device’s mic.
We found Wind Meter, designed by GoingApps, in the iTunes store (www.itunes.com) for 99 cents. We’ve downloaded it, and will report on its performance.
