Wanted Stern Light Plastic Globe

Post by R_Maclay » Sat Jul 28, 2012 3:30 pm

I have an original stern light chrome pole with flag attachments with a missing plastic globe.

It is a threaded top. Plus I think I need the base too. I replaced the one on my XL-175 SunLounger years ago, with a extended aftermarket version.

Anyone have a good source of either a new or used globe, it would be appreciated.

Thanks, Mac

Here is an original image from the '70's from the original owner showing the flag with the proper threaded globe.

Jim Staib fine wood boats will have it, and if he doesn't, he will know!

Your pole is not the same as shown in the photo. Your pole takes a globe with external threads. The globe in the photo has internal threads.

I thought I saw one of these in one of the photos Jim posted of the "clean" shop.

Oh Bother.....I'm glad I've been corrected.

So what do I do, can I still get a globe for the one I have now?

Any known resources I can get from the membership?

If the one on EBAY is correct I'd go after that.

I was looking to keep this one, since it has the flag attach points that the ebay doesn't have, sorry I didn't know about the threads being different on it.

Oh well, the search goes on, time to start looking in the local Bay Area marina's & boat shops.
