What brand of switches were used on a 1985 Boston Whaler 27 at the helm station? Where can repalcement switches be purchased?

A close visual inspection of the originals may produce more information about the manufacturer.

If they are red rocker & illuminated, & big by modern standards (fitting into a 2 inch by .850 inch slot), then they are probably made by E-T-A which is a German company with a U.S. presence [www.e-t-a.com] Do you have a wiring chart? I have 12 out of 20 slots used on my 1988 Whaler 27. The 2A-16A E-T-A switch/breakers have three blades: one for the load, and one for the positive [on/off] and one for the negative buss bars; a 20A unit has only two blades since not illuminated. I can help some more if this is what you have.
