Mast deck light

Post by Mike A » Mon Apr 26, 2004 5:23 pm

Does anyone know if the stock mast mounted deck light has a lens or just a sealed bulb? I noticed that there was no bulb or lens cover when I got to the marina this weekend. Does West marine carrry replacement parts for it?

Your lens and light got blown off somewhere in transit.

If the thing doesn't come off (riveted and soldered ?) wait for advice on brand and size.

If no one answers, call Bill at MacGregor's for advice.

Mast light

I had to replace the whole lamp assembly recently.. West Marine has the exact item:

LITE-NAV MASTHEAD #2
ITEM# 174391 $19.99

There are two long screws that hold the plastic and lens assemble to the mount. It does have a replaceable bulb.

That is the correct replacement part number, however if I were replacing mine I would go with the Masthead/Decklight combo #174409. Costs more, but gives a much needed deck light as well. Just wire a DPDT switch in the wire just above where it exits at the mast base.
