As several of you know I am in the switch bus. The company I work with is looking to get into the marine line on switches. So to start things off I have come up with a off-on-on switch that is sealed and I am hoping that I can get it tested in the real world.
I want to ship 8 switches to 8 different people FREE. Hoping these people will install them on their boats for atleast one year. Otherwords I want to know how these switches perform. I want to put these in the worst conditions possible. These are made for bow ans stern lights but can be used for other applications also. If you would like a free sample. Please let me know. But I would like to keep in touch and get an email on the results

I would be happy to test one of those switches on my Montauk.

I am a wholesale distributor of marine parts and accessories in the Seattle area and would like to have a line of real marine switches. If they work I would be interested in distributing them in the Pacific Northwest.

I would be interested in testing your switch.

I'm restoring my 22' Guardian and need to replace all systems. I've researched almost all the switches on the open market and have not decided on one yet. I'm familiar with whats out there and can compare yours. I'll email you with my info and we can go from there.

Thanks, John

They will be shipped with the mounting hardware. and I would really like to send only one per person. Thanks guys for the response. I have done alot of testing on these switches to coply with different agenices but I want to put them to a real test. On a boat!
Again thanks,

Having just installed the third bow/stern light switch in my Montauk during the past year, I'd be happy to test your product. My boat will be in a saltwater slip year-round, so it should represent a very rigorous test environment.

Tim if Toggle, than I only need 1, I just cut hoes for 2 rockers for the nav and bilge. I will use the toggle for the interior lights.

I would love to try one out.
I need one for a "water puppy" pump I use to fill and drain bait tanks / wash off the anchor, raw water washdown/ back up bilge.
Geat little pump ... I just need a switch.
Oh, I am in Vancouver, Canada. The boat is always out in the elements, used in coastal waters.
You can reach me at
