LED Accessory/Utility Lights
« on: June 04, 2018, 01:06:06 PM »
I started working yesterday on installing two new LED accessory lights in my boat.

I wanted a single red light on my bow panel to use for basic stuff after dark. I chose red so it wouldn't attract bugs.

I also wanted a single white LED on the side of my console, to use for unhooking fish, weighing fish and other various tasks. I chose white for this one so it could be used without affecting my ability to see colors, such as when placing or replacing a cull tag on a fish.

I'm about 40% done. Pics to come!

Got the red bow panel light done!







I got the light mounted on the side of my console and drilled the hole for the rocker switch, but still need to wire everything up and install the switch into the hole. Should have that done soon  :nod:

You are going to have that thing lit up like a Christmas tree before you get done. ;D

I was thinking the same thing  (giggle)

But the funny thing is that most of these lights will only get used a small percentage of the time. Having them there when I need them makes it worth the time and effort of installing them!

Once I start fishing at night (very soon), I'll get some pics of it on the water with them turned on  :nod:

I spent time last night finishing up the console-mounted LED accessory light that will light the cockpit area when fishing at night.

Here are a few pics.







I also started working on the two livewell LED lights and made really good progress on them. I've been taking pics as I do each step, so I will post them once they are completely installed and working.  :nod:

Here's one last shot I took last night of the cockpit area after dark.



Definitely well lit!
