      We have just purchased our first yacht (1999 Bavaria 31) and i have noticed the two lights halfway up the mast do not work, nor any at the top of the mast
      Am i not finding the correct switch or is this a common bulb fault

        Uncommon for all 3 to have blown at the same time and if they have surveyor would normally have spotted this.
        It isn’t a very regular problem and I’ve had to replace 2 in 8 years.
        On that vintage Bavaria the mast lights are usually the top 3 switches on the left hand side of the electric panel.
        From memory
        1st is usually tricolour
        2nd is steaming light and
        3rd is deck light.
        There is often then a 4th switch, sometimes one of the spares for the anchor light
        Silly question but I assume you have turned the 12v panel on?
        Regards
        Richard

          Could it be corrosion in the deck plug?
          Best regards,

              Cordless drill I expect because you can guarantee the screws holding the lens cover on will be completely rusted in and will need drilling out.

                All fixed,turned out to be blown bulbs.
                The deck flood light was corroded but after some wire brushing off and new chrome reflector applied its as good as new.
                Thanks for all the replys on this thread
