New to Us 2008 43 Super Sport

Postby Occ » July 31st, 2020, 8:48 am

Just bought a 43 SS. I’ve got a courtesy light out on the stairs. It’s a thin all white 2 screw light. Tried all the online boating stores but can’t match one. Any help?

Welcome to the forum.....Considering your boat is fairly recent, perhaps a call to Carver and see what the original supplier was, maybe they are still available.

Is it the whole fixture you want or just a bulb ?

Are you sure they are sealed? I have similar lights on my aft deck and the cover will pop out of the center with a thin screwdriver. Just be careful not to pop it our to forcefully near the water as I almost launched mine into the drink.

Can likely pop it off and change the bulb out.

Mine look the same however yours has 2 visible screws. On mine the light cover pops off with a screwdriver inserted below, there is actually a notch for this. Once the cover is off, you can swap the bulb but is also reveals the 4 screws holding it in place.

Just ordered 13 replacements since mine are getting yellowed and looking their age. These use wedge style bulbs which I had already converted to LED so I will use those in the new housings. Oddly enough they were $7 last Friday when I ordered them and now they are $10?

Welcome aboard.

You can try contacting Carver with your hull number and they will give you part numbers and the supplier information.

Let us know what you end up with/doing.

These fixtures take 161LL bulb available at most auto parts stores. They are 3W (?) but there is a similar one at 6W 194LL (i think?) that would also fit.

I have not found the LED version of this.

There are colored ones as well, if you'd like to change the ambiance. "Google" 161LL bulbs
