For several years now, the socket in the post or mast for the original anchor light lamp on my 1977 Montauk has been broken. I like the heavy duty appearance of the original and didn't want to replace it with a newer version so I've been soldering in light bulbs whenever a replacement was necessary.

The other day, I found a Perko mast light on clearance at Academy sports. On a whim, I bought it, cut the socket out of it and found with a little sanding to reduce its diameter with a dremel tool it was a perfect fit. Well, almost perfect, it did take a few licks with a rubber mallet to seat it in place.

Anchor light is now good as new.

I managed to drink two beers while grinding away on the one I modified so it was time well spent.
