Author Topic:   Bow light missing on Revenge

There's a hole under the middle of the bow railing to route the wires through, but I don't see any wires. I think I hear them though, by banging on the starboard railing. Any ideas on how big of a job this is?

Thanks,

Mike

Mike,

Could you be a bit more specific? What Revenge do you have? What year?

To answer your question: It's not much of a job. The wiring just runs under the rub rail insert. Pry it out and you'll see it.

You must have a Revenge WT model. On some of thease boats the bow combination light mounted to (clamped around ) the hand rail on the bow pulpit. The light was mfg by Perco I believe and was black plastic. I had such a set up on my '91 25. I used this set up for one season & then converted to seprate lamps port & stbd that whaler used on earlier models. I did this as the central mounted combination fixture interfeared with my night vision as it was located directly in the helm's line of sight and would bounce back light when runnning in foggy conditions.

Mine also ('90 Revenge WT). But I have separate port & starboard nav lights. Cetacea Page 44. Putting on the P&S lights might be easier than removing the bow rail and tracking down/grabbing the wires. You may be able to pull them all the way aft & out and then run them P&S if they're good.

It's an '89 Revenge 22 W/T (nice call, wsteffens!). I never liked the looks of the plastic combo lights, & the original one probably broke off. I think both your suggestions for separate lights are the way to go. Not sure how to route the wires, though. Did you have to drill a hole all the way through to the cabin & run the wires internally back to the helm?

Thanks,

Mike

I personally didn't do the work myselfe. I had the dealer do it. I am sure there is someone out there that can tell you how they ran the wires up the coaming. I have checked my older sales flyers. The correct (OEM) location for the seprate fixtures are just ahead of the farthest outside side strake. This location was used on both Outrages and Revenge models 20-25'. If I had to guess I would think the wires were run in a cavity under the rub rail.

The only holes you'd have to drill would be for mounting the running lights (4 holes, 2 screws each?) and running the wire through to the inside (2 holes, 1 port, 1 stbd). Total of six holes. The run to the starboard side should be short. The run to the post side goes across the cabin top at the aft end of the cabin, hidden under the padding to keep you from hitting your head when you enter the cabin. The padding is secured by 4 screws (easy to remove). Running the wires to the port side is easy. I'm not sure exactly what's behind where the lights are mounted - I'm pretty sure they're mounted just aft of the aft bulkhead to the cabin. Right now my boat is snowed in and tarped over, currently 28F and snowing, expecting 4" today.
