I am looking for original running lights from a 1965 13-footer. Any advice? Thanks.

It might be better to describe the lamp fixtures. There was an elaborate bi-color bow light with integral chocks that was used on some Whalers. This is quite a heavy piece of brass or chrome. Is that the one you are looking for?
My Whaler has the OEM bow light but it is just a simple bi-color lamp, not fancy at all and could be replaced with one from a West Marine catelogue.
In the stern the white all-around light was mounted with two fixtures that encircled the pole. These look pretty hard to duplicate nowadays.
Perhaps others will contribute more advice.

I have a 1963 13' Whaler Sport and have the original stern 360 deg. light and use the boat alot. The light height does not meet the current regulations for night use, which is I believe 3'above the height of the bow light. Anyway the light itself is fine piece of crome plated brass and much better than you find on small boats today. Good luck on finding one.
