Repairing the bow light.
It came from someone who also owns the same make and model of boat it was based on, the 1966 Glastron V-174!! His is the 1967 version and is featured on his YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdTHdjUf3GNp3ke7w0PqKOQ
These and most other metal boat parts from those days were made out of pot metal. They would either develop pits of just break.
This model of light had a divider in between the colored globes that broke off. Luckily, the man I bought it from had this and drew out a pattern for me.
I went on the internet and ordered a set of aluminum thickness samplers, which coincidentally had the thickness I needed.
With help from a Dremel tool, I now have a complete bow light.
