Capri Spotlight

Post by MikeM » Fri Jan 21, 2011 10:51 am

Hello gang,
I am trying to make a positive ID on a spotlight for a 1956 21' Capri. The hull card says it shipped with a "ITEM#1-KM-32" under spot light in the 'extra equipment' section of the hull card.

I received this boat with no spotlight and the hole in the deck had been plugged. I checked a bunch of accy catalogs and could never find that item number next to any lights.

Does anyone know for sure what the KM-32 is?

I noticed that this topic received no responses and I am in the same boat!

I have new to me 1952 23' Holiday with a large Iva-Lite installed on the deck. However, the hull card indicates that the original light was a KM-32. Having contacted Iva-Lite they told me this is not an Iva-Light designation.

Can anyone offer any help with what a KM-32 is? Have searched the internet to no avail. I don't think it is a half mile ray either, but I could be wrong.

Thank you

It is Chris-Craft's designation for a salt water Iva-lite. Here is a shot from the parts manual.

Interesting, the boat was delivered in Wisconsin.
