Re: Pls help Identify this electrical receptacle

Thank you all for your very helpful responses. I have researched further and believe I have found the answer, the 2006 Dufour 34 was an anniversary addition (40 yrs) which included a few upgrades including this one:

"12V outlet in cockpit for inspection light"

So the winners were Horus, PDScott and Djarraluda. I recall now that I also first thought it was for the windlass (wishful thinking) but the plugs didn't match with the remote in the forward cabin. Also it couldn't be an autotiller as I have a wheel, but agree it did look like several autotillers I found on the internet. Lastly not shown in the picture but separately there is a smaller receptacle for the VHF mike.

Now, if anyone knows where I can get a three prong inspection light I'm all set.

Thanks again for everyone's efforts. I find CF a very useful forum thanks to those willing to provide their thoughts like everyone who responded to my question.

Re: Pls help Identify this electrical receptacle

Any dual lamp, with a high and low beam setting, a coiled cord with the ability to place the connector end of the appropriate choice, will work. Marine grade preferred, however not always afforded.

Re: Pls help Identify this electrical receptacle

I don't understand why those Europeans need a bulky power plug that looks like an audio connector.

Re: Pls help Identify this electrical receptacle

Whitworths Marine and Leisure is the easy Australian resource for the plug and socket sets (2 pin or 3 pin available), but I believe they are Taiwanese origin and must be available in US.
