Default Need Advice - Under Gunnel Lights

Looking for direction on the most dependable and simple under gunnel strip or rope lighting (must be sold in at least 5-6' increments - longer the run the better) Just plain white lights. No RBG controller, no cheap connectors to rust. Just simple sturdy 12v under gunnel lights. Thanks.

I bought these and put them under gunnel of a 24' triton LTS bay boat. Worked great, very bright and you can easily cut to fit. Both ends have soldered lead so you can use the "tail" end if you will, for something else. Super easy install maybe 1.5hr total

I went with battery powered hockey puck led lights. They came with a remote control for a dozen current colors. No wiring, and held in place with super Velcro.

I used waterproof LED sign modules. They come in a variety of light colors. They come on a string of however many you want. Cut them apart and put them wherever you want. All you need is wire and some heat shrink butt splices. The modules are about a buck a piece. There are hundreds of different ones to choose from.

Lumitec Rail lights work well. The foot long strip is plenty bright, you can have colors with no controller or external switches/remotes.
