I've never used the rear light on my boat but thought I might need it on the Garda trip. I cleaned it up and tested it works using a spare battery in the garage. I then plugged it in to the socket at the back of the boat and it didn't work. I removed the socket and it is badly corroded where the wires attach to it. The copper wires seem to be black inside no matter how far I cut back so I'll probably need to renew.
Does anyone know where I can buy a new socket from by itself? The terminals on existing one are beyond repair. If possible I'd like to avoid buying a complete light kit. My local mariner doesn't have what I need, although I have another one to try.

Replace the wire with marine grade tinned cable - not enough manufacturers use it!
