Anyone have one of these?

Hi All,
I am looking for a searchlight base. The type that a search light mounts on, and bolts to the front of the flybridge.

If you have one of these, I would be pleased to take it off your hands!

Doesn't look to complicated how about making one yourself or having one made up of fiberglass or aluminum.
Just a thought.

You are right SD
I was thinking same, perhaps out of stainless.
I am trying to keep it 'original' where I can.

I'm sure a sheet metal shop could bend one up for you out of stainless.

A little welding and you are good to go.

Still gonna cost you a least an houre shop time plus material say around $200.00.

You could always make one yourself out of wood.

I have never seen one. Luck in your search.

It looks like you have a 48LRC.have you tried Sam's marine. I have the same set up on my 48 and had Hrvey rebuild and re chrome mine about 5 years ago. I am going to remove it and sell it. We run at night a lot and I am going to update to a 12" Carlisle Fintch. Attached is a picture of mine, look familiar!

it's me, Sailor John! No, I don't have the 48 LRC, (cuz you haven't sold me yours yet) I used the pic from a file I had to show the mounting base. I have the Hatteras 38.

Maybe some day!
Sam's may be a good contact, they are in Florida and in MD. They bought all of Hatteras's old parts and molds.
Good luck
