Hi Sibrand. Do you know what the light looks like? Try ebay under "vintage bow lights". Lots of nav lights for sale but most are not identified as to the boat they came from. Keep looking. Over time, a wide variety of parts show up there.

First - WELCOME! :laugh:

The bow lights were normally added by the owner or boat dealer, and are not necessarily germane to Glasspar. Only exception that I'm aware of, are the bow lights on a 1964/1965 Seafair, but I don't believe these were manufactured by Glasspar. See pic (the spot light n top was added by previous owner):



Jerry's suggestion of ebay, is probably your best bet.

Thank both of you for your input: I had no idea that these were not standard Glasspar parts.

Is that correct about the 64 Seafair Sedan light? If so does anyone have a line on one. You know me I'm a sucker for anything like this.
Thanks
I have actually seen lights like this on ebay and never gave them a second thought.

Jack,

As far as I know it's correct. Initially thought it was only the 1965 model, but then pointed out that Brian Slager's (Florida Glasspar Group) 1964 had the same light. Since then, several owners of the same years show up. I've only seen the lights on eBay once or twice. Again, I wouldn't think they were produced by Glasspar, but had some contract to use these lights for these particular years.

As you can see on ours, the green lens has turned to blue. Haven't been able to find a replacement lens....
