Default Deck/Flood Lights

I am in the process having a tuna tower fabricated and in the standing platform there is going to be a pod glassed in that will accomodate two flush mounted deck lights. Does anyone have a suggestion on what I should use? I need them to be pretty bright since they're going to be about 17' off the cockpit deck. Power consumption is of little concern as I have ample power onboard the boat.

12v or 120v?
There are some 12v LED models out now, but to get the brightness you're looking for you'd need to drop some big bucks- $500-$600 ea. There are always the 12v, 50w halogens that are cheap and easy to get.
If you run a gen offshore, I'd go with 120v halogens. Cheap, and at up to 500w ea., will light up half the ocean for you.
