    I have owned a Coronado 23, Catalina 25, Catalina 27, and a Cape Dory 30. All have had the steaming and anchor lights. But I cannot find them for my New (To Me) H26. As a matter of fact, I don't see a single light on the mast. But there are breaker/switch's for the anchor and steaming lights. Doe the H26 come with these lights on the mast? Or will I need to run a light up the main halyard?

    Mine is so far straight up that it's hard to see except from an angle.

    Steaming light's supposed to be 225 arc forward... the 360 all around light for anchoring can be anywhere that is adequately visible.... the boom end or foredeck halyard for example. The point is you can attach a wired or battery powered steaming light with a Velcro strap to the mast... or simply hang a lantern from a visible point on the boat.... should you not want to deal with running new wires up the mast in the immediate future.

    I believe the boats came with a Perko Fixed Mount Combo Masthead All-Around Anchor light, like this.

    The owners manual depicts the same light.

    Mike, are you saying there is no light at the top of your mast? Was it removed for some reason? Is there a wire with connector coming out of a hole at the base of the mast?

    Doug J is correct that all the water ballast boats came with the Perko Combo light. The forward bulb for steaming and both bulbs on acting as for anchor light. It appears the combo light on the Hunter 26!is missing for sure

    Wait until dusk, flip the switches and see what comes on.

    I didn't see a mast/steaming light feature... which is one of the original poster's interests.

    Joe;
    On the inside DC panel is an on-off-on switch.

    If there is no light at the top of the mast, where or what happennend to it.
    If a switch or breaker on the panel is shot, you can order it from any supplier but it is made by Sierra and on the breaker, note the amp.
