Docking Lights

I ordered and obtained a set of docking lights and wish to fit them to my Olympic, anybody know or can suggets how far from the front of the boat they should be and how much under the edge of the top deck?
Thanks

Hi,
I was at Peter Freebody's yard yesterday and spotted an Olympic. Remembering this post I lifted the edge of the cover and discovered docking lights! I didn't have a tape measure with me and Richard Freebody was busy with customers so I took a rough measurement using my Iphone 5 (in it's rubber case) as a gauge. From the top of the chrome bezel to the underside of the deck plank was exactly one length: so 5 inches. From the front of the bezel to the bow, measuring in a line parallel to the deck was 4 and a quarter lengths making 21.25 inches. I know this isn't very scientific but it will give you an idea of where they should be. Alternatively, you could give Richard a call on +44 1628 824382 and ask him if he would measure it for you.
I hope this helps.
