    Default Replacing navigation lights

    Can anyone tell me what type of replacement bulbs (or part #) will I need for my 26 hewes? I would run out and check, but with my knee all bandage up I can make it ou there. I called Deweys and they told me they they don't install them so they really don't know. Stop by West Mariana and they did not know.

    I am always changing the bulbs, but what I have now is not what I started with. You might pull one off and check what type. Part number could be a mystery.

    Sorry about your knee, take two halibut and call me in the morning.

    Look at West Marine or Fisheries Supply online for bulbs.

    You might try a quick call down to Hewescraft. I bet htey would just send you some. Just a thought.

    Default Special Bulbs YES

    Well the bulbs they use are a way heavier filiment and are much brighter. I took one out and went to NAPA, they have them in the book but on stocked, surprizingly couldn't find any in stock in town, but I didn't call but 2 places. So I went to the standard auto bulb with spares. They are not as heavy duty fillement or as bright, (about half). I coated them in a very light coating of dialectric grease to keep them from freezing up.

    Default Having the same problem

    Been trying to replace my bulbs on my Perko Nav Mast Light, Ive gone to West Marine 3 times. They tried to help, but gave me the wrong ones and Im still looking for the right size. They are the short stubby ones, Perko Bulb no. 0071DP0CLR, common bulb for Perko brand, anyone know where I can find a set or two?

    call the perko rep here is themap that brings up the three
    http://www.perko.com/reps.html
    west-line marine is who carries them. up here west marine is the only supplier. but it may be easier going to the manufacturer. perko lights are coast guard approved and that is a requirement on out boats. found your light around page 73 of the catalouge have to order 2 , no price listed.
