I knew that I was never going to have a boat to put them on so I wanted to put them back out into circulation. I kinda got into this stuff quite a while ago, so was fortunate to find this stuff before it really went nuts. It was difficult to find the correct staffs for them, but I got to know a lot of the different boat collectors out there. Here's a couple of photos of the one I had. Sold it for $250 to a person that had a legitimate need for this particular piece. Didn't do too bad on it, I paid $5.00 for it in a second hand store in the bottom of a dirt encrusted wood box full of ancient plumbing parts and pieces. I pulled it out and took it to the counter, and the clerk asked me what it was. I just shrugged my shoulders and said "damned if I know, it's just cool." He replied, okay, five bucks.That's the way we used to do it. You'd look and you'd look, and then you'd look some more. The more you looked, the more you'd find. ebay wasn't even in the future. It took some cleaning up and I did have to source a new light lens for it, but it was looking good on the shelf for a few years.
Those are about as cool as they can be. Thanks for sharing them. I would love one of those type lights.
