What is considered the correct bow light foe a 1975 Sport 13'?
I priced one of the light/chock models: $238.00 !!
Any suggestions?

Mark that is the correct model!

Good Luck finding a used one!

You can order through your local dealer the part # is 500-05068 (this will include all
hardware, light, and bollards).

The last price I received from a dealer here in NJ was around $200 or so about a month ago ---

Hope this helps --- Tom

Thanks for the update. What Whaler dealer did you get your price from?

I live S/E Pa.

Has anyone else seen this cheaper than $200?

tcm the bow light now up on ebay by those so called Whaler restorers out in CA would cost you more than a new one after you had the chrome re-plated --- chuckle --- but it is an original for sure ---

Tom, Are the chock/light combination lights still available from BW? I had mine re-chromed for $40 from a company in Washington. They did a superb job, better then I expected.

Kurt in a word yes --- here are the part numbers received from Chuck Bennett at Whaler CS ----
The bow light chock is group number 500-05068 (this will include all
hardware, light, and bollards).
The Sternlight is part# 1035237.
The upper bracket is part# 1033034.
The lower bracket is part# 1033026.

Have to order through a dealer --- no direct sales --- also from various post find dealers will sort of set their own mark up seen prices for the bow as a low in the $170's and high as $200 + Tom

Can anyone tell me where they have seen the the bowlight w/chock from a BW dealer for the cheapest? $170's would be nice.

Mark oops that should have read low in the $180's --- sorry about that, to early in the morning for this old man to be seeing straight --- Tom

$180's would be nice too. But where?

Mark, I saw one on eBay, las bid was about $42. Didn't look too bad, may need to be rechromed, but the description said it was from the 60s or 70s. Check it out, good luck.

Be careful about the condition of the
electrical parts. They are unique to
the whaler bow light, and the only way
to get another set of inards is to buy
a whole light (though you only have to buy
the top round part, not the plate and
the two thumbs that stick up.

I just bought a nice 16 foot pre 72' Whaler missing the bow and stern lights. I prices replacements form the dealer and he wants $67 for the light and $135 for the bow chock. No other dealers in my area and I have been unable to get a responce from any other Whaler dealer that I have found an email address for on the net. Any suggestions?

rwest --- look at the above post from Mort -- apparently he got a set for around $180 -- decent price might email him for the name of the dealer --- click on the little square icon with face and ? for email address
