Hi Tro52,

My former '74 Tricabin had chrome transmission handles. I have not seen wooden handles on these boats nor heard of them until now. Are you sure the previous owner did not change out the stock handles for custom wood units? Maybe someone more experienced than I will have an answer for you.

But obviously if you can find a tricabin rotting away in the back of marina somewhere, you will have a "parts car."

In regard to the light mast. My light staff broke about half-way up to the bulb from the base. I had a replacement custom-made by a metal fabrication shop. So I guess I'm really no help there either. The stock staff was cheaply made though, surprisingly enough.

Good luck with your tri-cabin, my friend. Great hull. Had mine a long time.
