Default Underwater lights

Looking to mount some underwater lights on my 17 bay boat. Who do you think makes the best light? What color seems to be the best for brackish water? Would you use an external mount or a through hull mount?

These guys are out of Gulf Shores, no clue on their quality though...

Like car manufacturers, there's a dozen different makes, both flush mounted and externally mounted.

Default Coastal Night Lights

Coastal Night Lights, give Chris a holler. Have been using his products for years, super bright both underwater and spreader lights are awesome. I just ordered 2 more to add to the arsenal of the DL underwater lights in blue and already have 2 on it that are super bright. External mount without a doubt 4200 and some tape to keep it in place while they set, I would buy green for brackish just my opinion.

You should check out Docholiday74 here on THT, his shop is selling underwater lights similar size to Lumitec's Seablazes but twice the lumens for $225 shipped. Coastal's lights are only 800 lumens (I have 2 DRs facing back) but the ones I was suggesting are 8,000 lumens. Gonna try them out and face them downward.

Green is best for the bays and inshore. Coastal night lights are cheap and good quality. I've had mine for 3 years without any issues. They are more than bright enough for a bay boat using them inshore.

Double the lumens for half the price sounds like a recipe for disaster. If it is the same footprint as the Seablaze, I find it hard to believe the drivers on the light you suggest will hold up over time to push that much power...

But maybe I am wrong

Yes a very similar size footprint. Contact him with any questions you or concerns you have, I did and he was more than willing to help out
