    Click image for larger version  Name:	spot light.jpg Views:	1 Size:	1.65 MB ID:	23799 Had this light for many years. Switch is shot. Is there any way to rig a switch before replacing the light? Can't get a switch. Has 8 wires.

    Motorized isn't it?
    so a toggle switch momentary both ways to control motor and a on/off for light power.

        Does it have a joystick style control jerry?
        If so let me think a little and explore an optional replacement.

        Jabsco's searchlights enhance visibility while navigating narrow channels, locating buoys, and more. Shop for marine-grade searchlights at Fisheries Supply.

          Dang light is expensive to replace!
          switch isn't cheap either but better than a whole assembly.

            A lot of money for a control switch. I think I'll just go with a new light, cheaper model. I really do like this light though.

            My problem is that the control toggle has rusted off. I took it apart to see how it works. Typical Shamrocker. The toggle is on an 8 way little black box. I removed the rubber mounting grommet on the toggle and that let the toggle pass through the mounting plate enough for me to operate it. I just made $300. Taking the rest of the day off.

              Have no idea what I'm talking about Jerry but how about an old bennett joystick trim tab switch?

                I bet that would work. Still would have to add a toggle for the on/off though. Good idea.

              That light is worth to many man points to toss. Just don't tell anyone that it doesn't work.

                  Jerry - Had that light (or 1" less in diameter) in AFI version and replaced it. For the life of me don't remember what I did with the old one and it's switch. I'll look at halftime. (Clemson is beating the mess out of NCSU so need the distraction.)

                    Jerry-

                    Has 8 or 9 wires. Speed control, spot/flood, direction. Let me know if you can use it. Switches worked when removed but no promises.

                    Well, at least State has scored one touchdown...

                      If Chris sees this thread I can see him searching for one of these, definitely good for the cool factor.

                        Cecil thanks, the direction control is what I need. Your switch looks different on the front but, is he same guts. I don't have speed control.https://cdn.boatersplus.com/images/d.../1044663-1.jpg
