Need Bow Light for 1977 Outrage

I just purchased a beautiful 1977 19' Outrage. It has the type of bow light that also acts as a line chock. One thing that is missing is the top of the bow light that comes off to access the bulb. I suspect someone dropped it in the water along with the red/green plastic insert.
Does anyone out there have this part laying around? Or know of someone that might have it. If so I would be willing to purchase it from you. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any assistance is much appreciated.

I think you can buy a replacement from a Whaler dealer, but my understanding is they aren't the same materials or quality.
The originals were chrome over brass. The original red / green plastic lens is no longer available.
These come up periodically on ebay. Even if they aren't very pretty, you can have them re-chromed. For reference, I had one rechromed for about $12.00. It actually looks better than new as the chrome shop really does a nice job polishing.

A perko will fit as well.

I bought this light off EBay "STAINLESS STEEL BOAT NAVIGATION COMBO LIGHT 00153" It has the same footprint as the Perko 972 which fits the 1986 Montauk.
This Montauk also has the chock/light combo. It is 2 3/8" wide.
Hope this helps.

I just spoke with customer support at Whaler. The light assembly is available from Whaler (dealer) and it is called a classic bow light part # 500-05068. Apparently the light was used on number of models for several years. The light isn't cheap, customer support said it would be "north of $200". Salti_Fli .
