Default Help finding a panel switch?

My friend has a panel in his boat designed and installed by Mobile Marine Electrical Services, Inc. of Newburyport, Ma. It appears that they are now out of business. There is a switch on the panel that is jammed (can't be turned). I have included photos. Can anyone advise where we can get a replacement switch? Or if there are remnants of Mobile Marine Electrical Services, Inc. left?
Thanks in advance for your assistance

This will work. The pointer may not line up exactly but electrically its going to do the job.

Default Good advice.........

I suppose I would have to figure out which wire gets soldered where. That could be tricky. They must have gotten this switch from some electronics source and I am wondering whether someone out there knows or perhaps has a similar or smaller panel for sale that I can cannibalize the switch. Interestingly there are wires soldered on and then butt connected to other wires. I am pretty good with electrical work but I get a little twitchy when a part may not be a perfect match. Your suggestion for the price may be good to try but I would like it to line up right on the panel. It's not my boat and I do not want to cause any confusion for others using it.
