    Trying to find a new navigation light

    I have a 2005 GS 201 Fundeck.  I need a new Navigation light at the top of my Bimini.  Anyone know where I can order one?

      Cmpinion, I just went to Wally World and purchased an Attwood folding/adjustable light unit. The hardest part was removing the crappy old fitting made of Zamak (zinc) I believe. Due to some issues with the bimini frame itself, I had to re-wire the light altogether. A real PITA! but will do till the end of this season and another bimini frame is located.

      I bought a Perko that looked like it would be an easy replacement, but the screw holes were slightly further apart, so I widened the mounting holes in the SS Bimini frame a little and it worked out fine. In hindsight, I don't know that I could've found a perfect fit because nothing I looked at quoted the mounting screw separation. Grrr.

      I recommend soldering and shrink-tubing the connection so you'll not have an issue with it for a long time.
