Default Cockpit Lights

Has anyone seen stick-on battery powered lights like this anywhere that may have less power and be smaller and maybe more indirect light suitable for a pleasure boat cockpit. I haven't found any replacements for my corroded old ones and am thinking instead of playing with fiberglass modifications of doing something like this...

I would think these would be good for some boat uses- hard to tell how bright they are. Heck, I almost never use the things so maybe even this will do - it'll fill up the holes...

Hi Bailey

Thanks for taking the time to look

http://cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templa...equestid=11536

I have noticed that often if it is a long link, the THT post only displays parts of it but it usually still works.....

If this one doesn't work it is product # AW-52-1870 from Cabelas.. $ 24.

OK here it is....

I need to cover a 1.5'x3" hole and they don't give the size. Do you know how big they are?

Thanks again
