Hi guys,

I was wondering how to open access to the red navigation strobe located on the bottom of the boom. There is no way a Dremel would reach in and I don't have a flex cord attachment to use.

Any ideas would come in handy. Thanks!

Use a reamer.. It will make nice clean holes without chipping the gel coat..

This is what I use...

Now I think I know what your trying to do... I removed the red lens that came glued on and used the Lens that came with my lighting system.. Then I used the reamer to make the hole I needed.. Sorry.. I wasn't sure what you were trying to do.. I don't believe you'll be able to get at it from inside..

Thanks. I was trying to get to the lens from the inside.

Did you simply cut the lens off?

Yes.. I used the Dremel to sand it off though I've read where someone used a heat gun to soften the clue and pulled it off...
