Item #P6-03 is a singular navigation post light that was salvaged from a working vessel. Red navigation lights were used to indicate the left side (port side) of the boat so that other ships would be able to avoid any incidental crashes.
This beautiful red lens post light stands about 14 inches tall by 8 1/2 inches wide. The base measures 6 inches in diameter with 4 mount holes. The light weighs 16 pounds.
We have rewired this light with UL listed wiring and bulb sockets. Rated for up to 250 volts. The bulb holder accepts medium base bulbs of 100 watts or less.
The red Fresnel lens is in good shape, with a couple edge chips.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
