Would someone know the number/model of bulb in the tower anchor light. I would like to replace it with a white LED bulb.

My 2 cents for those who may search and find this thread: be careful when selecting LED bulbs to replace an old incandescent bulb.  The candidate above looks great, but for older boats with the different socket just know that white light from an aftermarket LED is not always "white."  You definitely want a warm white, as the inexpensive "cool white" LED bulbs make the green starboard side lens look blue. 

Also, higher wattage is not necessarily better for NAV lights; note that the candidate above is only 1 watt.  I had to downgrade from my first bulb because it was way too bright.

Hey! I think we may have what you are looking for here-

Replacing the standard anchor light to an LED is super easy. We carry the Warm White LED T10 Wedge Replacement Bulb  that fits into most anchor lights with a T10 wedge base insert. We also offer the Attwood 5580A7 LED Waketower All Around Light Kit if you would like to swap out the whole thing it would be a much more durable option in the long run. 

Here is a step by step tutorial too if you need it showing you the difference between the two options and how to install each -
