Even if you had to swap them all here is a close resemblance that would fit the panel. ==> https://greatlakesskipper.com/carlin...minated-16-amp <==

I did this on two separate boats this summer - both the 88 and 94 had burnt bulbs, the 88 had a bad rear bulb socket - this caused me several problems, the first was I couldn't get my voltmeter down into the hole on the hull so I tried to read voltage at the mast head - which didn't work.

This lead me to believe I had an actual wiring/fuse/switch problem that I spend a good hour trying to troubleshoot before grabbing the mast from the other boat - which worked with a new bulb.

The bow lamp then was simply a bulb on both of the boats. I did replace my stern bulbs with LED versions - mostly because at idle with all the lights on they go dim and the LED is way brighter.

Testimony as the voice of reasoning....twice in this thread.... I'd check the bulbs...

Bow bulbs

Good Afternoon,

The switches in the pictures were manufactured by our competitor McGill.  
That rocker style is unique to them
Thanks, Ernie

It's all I got so far.

Mine is not the bulbs for sure.. They look fine.. I think I will just get my dealer to send me the one that lights up blue and run with it.. I'm never going to sell this boat anyway and just need them to work.

Looks are very problematic with light bulbs on boats, the pounding of waves and corrosion can easily cause the lights not to work - atleast unscrew the bow light assembly and use a voltmeter to test it - you will likely have juice there and if not you can set many voltmeters to "audible" and then start wiggling wires/fuses/connections and it will start chiming at you when you find the problem.
