I finished the searchlight today. I think it came out pretty well. All things considered.
I am glad the boat only carried one.

I added the 2 mounting standoffs to the mast.
I drilled a small hole for a mounting pin in the upper support. There is no way I could get 2 holes to line up perfectly for mounting this light. But, using a single mounting point, I can move the mast into the correct position.
I used small pieces of copper foil to make the bands to hold the brass wire in place.
