Default Underwater lights

What are the best underwater lights for a bay boat? Brightness and fish attracting at night.

These are not the "best," but I've had Coastal Night Lights for years with no problems. I have the S version in green. ScarabChris is a member here and he's the owner of the company. His customer service is second to none. I recommend them anytime a thread like this pops up.

Off topic a bit, how on Earth do you keep the barnacles off the lenses?

Carry on.

Most bay boats I would imagine are kept on lifts or trailers so there would be no time for growth and easy access to clean even if slipped for a few days while on a trip.

Always had a good experience with Lumitec, have 3 seablaze x2 spectrums right now. Lumitec cockpit and spreader lights as well.

Propspeed makes a product called lightspeed that I just tried this year, very little if any growth for about 3 months now.

I've had Coastal Night Lights on 2 previous boat, they were fine and the customer service was great. No issues with them. On my most recent boat I went with Seablaze Lumitec "Quattro" as I wanted slightly higher quality and something that was more robust / could potentially last longer.

CNL;


Seablaze (bad pic, dirty water)..they look great and can be white or blue;

Coastal night lights for sure, have had them on my boat for more than 10 years, they still work like day 1 and Chris has customer service to dream of.
