Hi,

Anyone know where I can get a replacement lens for this bow light?

The green side is really too weathered to be useable. My Whaler dealer told me the lens is not available separately anymore, that I need to buy a whole new light for $80!

Thanks in advance.

I should add that the new replacement light the dealer offered is for a later Whaler, not the same as the original.

You are out of luck. There are no replacement lenses for those lights.

Some have reported satisfactory results form cutting another Perko replacement lens in half, trimming it down and gluing it back together.

Others have suggested using a "Magic Marker" or equivalent to re-color the lens.

Boston Whaler seems to offer the same advice:
