    Post ROSTAND MARINE HARDWARE

    Peter, see page 79 of the manual. It has a reproduction of a portion of page 15 from Rostand Mfg Company's Marine Hardware Catalog #20 (their last).

    As you know, this company supplied Pierson until the 1970's. The "side lights" are catalog #54, the "stern light" is cat #56 and the "bow light is cat #52. I assume that there is no patent protection on these styles of light fixtures which is why Perko may have something similar. Got photos?

    Lookig at the 2004 West Master Marine Catalog, on page 697, the side lights are either West 281147 and 268518, Perko No. 0955oP0CHR and 1264DP0CHR (They are sold in red/green sets and I can't recall which of those two sets is the right size), and the stern light is West 257162, Perk No. 0965DP0CHR. They are also available, I believe, from Defenders

    They visually look the same, but the gasketing and the interior lamp design is improved over the original lights. And yes, they are bright shiny chrome.

    Navigation Lights

    I just wanted to start a thread on this item because I found
    a person who does exact copies of the Navigation Lights
    that you see in the Rostand Catalog in the manual. You know the side lights
    and that winged stern light. I found out that they are based on
    Herreshoff (sorry about the spelling) templates. This does not surprise
    me because Pearson was based out of Bristol, Rhode Island. They
    took over the old Herreshoff site in Bristol. They are made of Bronze
    and have a special coating so they never deteriorate or patina. I found
    this guy in a Wooden Boat magazine he is based out of Hull, Massachusetts.
    If anyone is interested add to this thread and I'll post the information on this
    thread.

    Might be a good idea to have the contact information. Someone could measure the originals on our boats and then check to see if the ones being offered were similar in size.

    Yes pulley systems that look like older systems but made with modern alloys.
    He has a catalog. His name I think is Jim Reinbeck and he will send out a catalog. He did some historical fittings for a Herreshoff named Joyner. I think
    he has made his reputation on historical replicas. But if you see the lights on
    this they are mind blowing they look exact. Especially the wings. I have my originals. I am also going to put in LEDs in those bayonet sockets I got info on that too. Less amprage is that right spelling and No replacements. Gotta love it especially when electricity is at a premium.

    Please share Reinbeck's contact information as soon as you can. My lights are trashed and I'd prefer the traditional design.
    Thanks.

    The info is as follows:

    The company is J.M. Reineck & Son

    The contact is Jim Reineck

    The work # is 781-925-3312
    The fax # is 781-925-8984

    Email is sales@BronzeBlocks.com (I don't think it works.)

    I think the website is http://www.BronzeBlocks.com it looks like it has not
    been updated in a while.

    The address is 9 Willow Street
    Hull, MA 02045-1121

    Best method of contact is call the work # you will hit an answering machine
    leave your name address and tell him you want a catalog. It took me a couple of weeks to get so don't become worried if it isn't in three days.

    There is something else I would like to mention the lights Stern and Port and
    Starboard Side Lights are not inexpensive!! They are $125.00 a piece.

    I want to get them because if they fit or if holes or have to be modified a bit
    they still look more authentic and closer to the originals, but using more modern techniques. My bulbs are are all dead. I am replacing with Leds they have some at West Marine for Bayonet Sockets. and there is a website
    superbrightLed.com I think that is what it is but check it in google. Best of Both worlds you know and god knows we could use less maintenance!!!

    Maybe we could work on a group rate. There are at least a thousand ariel boats
    and a lot of tritons ensigns and so on with all their associations and take the price down.

    I replaced all my navigational lights with Perko lights. They are identical to the original navigational lights, with updated lighting assemblies internally. The price might be kinder as well. Let me know if anyone needs the Perko numbers. As I recall, they are shown in the West catalog.
