Anyone know who makes the rubber coated on/off instrumentation switches that comes on the late model Outrages and Conquests? These are the ones with LED to show illumination and LED to indicate it's in the ON position.

I like to install a switch for my autopilot but can't seem to find the exact type of switches at West Marine or BoatUS.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I believe these switches were made by Carlingswitch, http://rocker-switches.carlingtech.com/sealed-rocker-switch__26.asp

Chuck and Dgp,

Thank you for the leads. Looks exactly like the Carlingswitch so today I took off the panel to take a look. Indeed it was made by Carling. Model: V1DB 20A 12V Will try to find a local distributor to see if they stock them. I have a feeling I'll end up having to visit the local Whaler dealer to find one.

Thanks,

Ivan

Turns out the Blue Sea switches are made by Carling. The
Aux switch on my '97 console developed a brief opening on
a shock (like jumping a wake or somesuch), so I replaced it
with a Blue Sea from West. Package said Blue Sea, switch
says Carling. BTW, these have an LED pilot light, and they
aren't nearly as bright as the incandescent originals.
