If you can, get down to Fawcett Marine in Annapolis. They are way expensive but they seem to have every supplier ever made and some really great guys working there. I needed some very specialized AC switches and they found some in a catalog they had there.

If they have to order it you could probably use a different switch as a temp.

What size (diminsions) are you looking for? I take it you are trying to match what you already have. Is there a manufactures name or part number on the switch?

Give the factory a call. They should have one or be able to tell you where to get it. Gaffrig sells large white military rocker switches also.

Eddie marine, Livorsi. Rex Marine etc, etc. You need a " military rocker switch, double pole, momementary on-off ". It is pretty much a standard in the industry for trim and tabs. Specify size, color and lighted or non lighted.

Over-nite freight and you can be on the water for the fourth!! Good luck.

Start at the top. Call the Manufacture or look on there website. There should be some sort of markings on who made the switch. They then might send you one directly or tell you who dist in your area.
