Navigation Light Post

Postby chuckdriessen » Wed Sep 03, 2014 6:07 pm

I have a 2001 188 bow rider. The rear navigation light/post needs to be replaced and it is about 3.5 - 4 ft long. The bottom inch of the post is flat and has the metal contact strips that press against the contact strips that are in the post holder. I cannot find a replacement light/post. Do you know where I can find one? Otherwise, I will have to put in an aftermarket which will be a lot of work/hassle. I believe it is an Attwater post/light, however, I can find the holder but not the post/light. Chuck in MN.

A buddy of mine slipped/grabbed my light pole and promptly broke it. I could not find the same stock Caravelle pole either. Ended up getting a Perko base and pole. Put it in the original hole. Looks great, great quality and it really wasn't much trouble to install.

Just go get a Perko or Attwood. If I remember I think my 4' pole and a base was about $80 total. West Marine has a good website. Electrical, lighting, navigation.
