Stbd nav light on '86 outrage has given up ghost via some water seepage. Would anyone know if marinium is still available? would very much like to keep boat original. Probably can improvise by replacing socket however, it might not be that easy. Thanks in advance.

The original Outrage series bow lights are no longer being made by North/Judd, division of Wilcox Crittenden. Your only hope of finding them would be from an old time Whaler dealer, or perhaps used on this site or Ebay?

I had the same problem a while back on my 22'...I ended up making one out of aluminum. I made the top as a mirror image of the other side then kind of "wrapped" the side piece around...You can spot the difference, but it's real close!! I wasn't ready to give in to the small replacements yet. Most any machine shop could do this for you.

Thanks guys. It wasn't as bad as I thought. Much to my surprise, while removing bulb, the socket assembly came out. I thought this was pressed into base of fixture. I picked up A Perko socket & bulb at local marine supply & installed an O-ring in place of original gasket between aluminum housing & top of plastic lense. Hope this will keep water out. So far, so good
