Default golight 2100 spotlight

Has anyone ever used one of these bowlights?
http://www.magnalight.com/pc-80-23-r...on-lights.aspx
It reads that it has 400,000 ICP and 5,000,000 adjusted retail candle power???
Is this pretty good for navigating at night?
How well does it hold up to the salt?
Does it pop out of the mount in rough water?

I've got a 196 Key West Bayreef. I don't have a t-top and I don't want to use a handheld due to whiteout. My trolling motor is in the way, so I can't use a suction cup mount or permanent mount. I was considering putting a removable clamp of sorts on the trolling motor shaft and attaching a permanent mount light on it, but I'd really like some more info on this GoLight if anyone knows anything about it.

Thanks

I bought the Stryker 3100last year w. an additional wireless control, using it a lot into the early Winter when darkness hitby 5:30 PM. Using a Magna grill rail clamp, I mounted the light on a piece of aluminum plate, transferring itbetween16' and 23' CC's. It's weathered well and has given me no real trouble. My only "wish" is that it had a floodlight setting as well as the spotlight beam. I really like the option of not having it permanently mounted, hopefully contributing to longevity.

Ackman,
Do you use it saltwater?
Any problems with corrosion being so far up on the bow?

WOW!!! I have been looking for something removable like that as well, I always wondered why nobody made something like that. That looks perfect, I woish they made a stainless version though.

The website info section says the below statement. If it's a 3 year warranty, I'd bet it will be ok in saltwater. I think I'm going to bang out one of these.....


"Both UV and saltwater resistant, the Golight Radioray comes with a three-year limited warranty. Each unit is approximately 6 inches high, 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep. "

this may be a dumb question, but can you operate the naviagtion lights without powering the spotlight?

Not sure.... but the remote does have a Light On/Off button.

Why would you want to do that, so you can aim it, then turn on...?

From what I read, you can control the spotlight separately.
This looks pretty good, and golight has a pretty good name, but I don't know anything about this particular model.
Also, does anyone know the difference between 400,000 ICP and 5,000,000 adjusted retail candle power???
Is this going to be enough for navigating in and out of the harbor and creeks at night?

I think the "adjusted" thingy is what it ends up looking like, because of hte mirrors/reflectors. So it's a 400k power light, but reflects it from al directions to go forward which adds up to a collective, 5million power. At least that is my story!!!
