    Replacement switches-gctid802709

    Does anyone know where I can find replacement switches for my Mainship? I cant find them on ebay or west marine. Any thoughts? The pic shows the switches I am trying to replace with the same style.

    Thanks

    Probably won't find that exact replacements with the screws but Here's some rocker switches that look similar.

      I think they used those on the last Apollo mission and then Teac had them for awhile on their reel-to-reels.

      Seriously though, that's a tough one. Sometimes there may be an electronics / HAM shop nearby that might have a trove of switches, but you might end up having to switch over to a newer Carling switch.

        Are those switches or circuit breakers?

        I'm thinking that the center-to-center screw pattern should be the same between manufacturers.

        Take a look here.

          They are in fact circuit breakers. Would cost a fortune to swap them all over. Was hoping someone knew of a boat salvage yard that would have something like this. I checked with some of the larger boat yards but no luck.

            Call Blue Sea Systems. They sell double pole circuit breakers that look a lot like the ones on your boat. Maybe they know who makes them.

              Circuit breakers, These will probably fit but there not going to match your current ones.
