Need help finding nav lite lens
 
My runnng light lenses are 1-1/4 od x 1- 3/4 ht and they are glass. The one I need to replace is the starboard side but it really doesn't matter as they are simply painted inside.

I thank ye for any leads thar be comin

It would help if you posted photos of them. DO you know who made the fixtures?

Dog, Grand Design is the fixture, the lenses are almost identical to the plastic perko replacement lens, they're just a tad taller & glass.

I'll take a picture tomorrow AM and post it

If they're not an after market item the dealer would probably be your best bet!
Everything is plastic now! :rolleyes:

The problem is they're probably original to the boat, and as such 32 years old... and may not be made any longer.

Hi Pappy,

I have a 1985 Tayana and did replace my port and starboard lights last year with the perko lens since the prior plastic lens had deterioated somewhat due to UV. It was cheaper to buy the entire perko lights vs just buying only the lens. Go figure. However, some years ago I think I replaced the Grand Deer lens with the perko and had to drill to get the perko lights into the pulpit. That's been more than 20 years ago and I tend to forget unpleasant tasks, but the replacement has held up well over the years.

I may have lucked out, our local boat detailer also does glass sculptures ( trophies for surf contests ) said he can do it, right on his boat. I'm going to do the whole set.
