well...got the boat wired up and got the first set of lights installed. this is the front side of the boat and these are the "underwater" lights i was talking about earlier this year. there is a panel on each side with 12 leds and one on the back of the transom with 9. right now the cost of each panel is about $4 each so they will be a nice cheap experiment. i let one soak for 12 hours the other day and it stayed lit the whole time. right now they are attached with sticky velcro, but i think i might have to use some marine adhesive to keep them on. i'm going to try to give them a run tomorrow morning or friday morning. if i'm hunting a very weedy marsh or breaking ice they come off in about 30 seconds, so i can remove them when i want to. i'm thinking of ordering some more and making some spare panels so when one gets smashed, i can slap another one on. anyone want to start a bet on how many hunts they will last?
