All around anchor/mast light lens replacement

Postby Seif911 » May 27th, 2013, 9:04 am

Good Morning All,
Ok, my marina neighbor is a freak about the lens replacements. He had a long story about how nobody replaces them when they are yellow and nobody can see them when they are on. Hmmm...he does have a point. So I was trying to find a lens replacement for mine but from 1977, I am not having much luck. It is a light divided by a reflector and the anchor side of it does not go straight down but at a angle, wider at the bottom than the top. So I would need 2 lens.

Anyone have any idea where to buy these from? Yes I know...pictures. Next trip I will take a ton :)
Thanks,
Steve

In an earlier reply to you, I mentioned Kendor's. They have brand new lights, as a well as a section with older out of date items. I was able to fix up my Perko's with stuff from Kendor's and saved a ton of money.
Thanks

I am thinking I may need to replace the whole thing.

Kendors...I just went to the site, that is the Great Lake Skippers. I have bought from them on eBay before. Funny!
Thanks,
Steve

The store in person is great especially matching up old stuff or finding something to make something new work in the place of old.
Thanks

I ended up just buying a new LED anchor light. The old one had some mounting problems to boot so I think this may be the best solution. Thanks all for the help.
Thanks,
Steve
