This lead me to believe I had an actual wiring/fuse/switch problem that I spend a good hour trying to troubleshoot before grabbing the mast from the other boat - which worked with a new bulb.

The bow lamp then was simply a bulb on both of the boats. I did replace my stern bulbs with LED versions - mostly because at idle with all the lights on they go dim and the LED is way brighter.
Testimony as the voice of reasoning....twice in this thread.... I'd check the bulbs...
