It does look wonderful. And I sure do understand the pooped feeling. Boat building is one of those labors of love with emphasis on the labor. :D :D

Excellent work! It looks amazing.
I've been whining a bit on the forum about the Key Largo option of the barrelback...and the lack of space to put things under the floor boards...but looks like I'm saving a ton of time on taping! :lol:

rub rail is going on, I'm pleasantly surprised they are going on much easier than I thought (low cuss index)

navigation lights

Post by steves »

I've found very little info on this forum for navigation lights, I found this light for $117 and it looks sorta classic. Anybody have any recommendations for running/nav lights bow and stern?

Ebay is a good source to search for classic and antique deck lighting. Perko does make a few new classic styles. Look up Jim Staib for original stuff.

Here are some sources for classic lights and deck hardware:
Finewoodboats.com (jim straub)
Classic Boat Connection - Call David at 507 344 8024 to see what he has. They show one like mine on their website
California Classic Boats - for reproductions. (might be going out of business soon)

I bought my bow light from finewoodboats.com (jim straub). It has the hole in the top for a flag. It is an original that had been re-plated. I got my stern pole socket from California Classic Boats, and the flagpole and globe light from Classic Boat Connection.
I would highly recommend any of the sources above.

It is Jim Staib of Fine Wood Boats. He is a personal friend and member of our ACBS chapter.

I have that cheaper bow light, any idea where to get the small flag pole that goes in the top?

I installed the perko bow light. Actually got it wired and lit this weekend (don't ask me why my anchor light won't light...grrr, but I will figure it out)

The perko light does have the classic look, but be mindful that the "chrome" finish looks cheaper. Hard to describe, but it looks more like plastic than metal (it is a metal housing). However, I've got mine mounted near a high-quality double horn, vintage cleat, and bow chocks...so only an expert eye would detect the difference. The classic lights I found were in the range of what Jimbob paid...the perko light is a nice facsimile.

Glen-L sells the flag pole and glen-L burgee. I don't know if they sell the pole separately. I have the burgee/pole (christmas gift from my boys), but I'm thinking of flying a different flag (if anyone wants the burgee). I have a swallow-tail flag with my boat name and will likely fly a US flag from the rear pole.
