Default Water Proff Flouresant Light

If anyone is looking for a water proof flouresant light for there hard/soft top let me know. I looked all over for one for my boat. Most of them are not water proff. I saw one that came factory rigged on an Angler. I wanted to buy one for my Grady but the Angler dealer told me he couldn't get them. He did give the name of the manufacture that makes them for Angler though. I looked long and hard to find a light like this. Used it all summer and it is doing well. It was a little pricy though. Around $100.00. They are made out of Miami Florida. If anyone is interested let me know. I will see if I can dig out the paper work. I'll try to attach a picture of it on this post. I'm new at this. Bear with me. I can't see how to do it here. I'll have to play around to find out how to attach pictures. Can anyone help me???

I bought it from World Canvas Inc. There number is 1-786-242-0711. I called them to make sure they were still in bussiness. They are. They are made out of stock alum. You can get silver($75.00) or Gold($90.00). It mounts under the hard top. I mounted mine between the canvas enclosure and the rocket launchers. Were it is mounted, when the rolled up drop down enclosure door is rolled up it blocks the light from lighting up my helm area providing me with better night time vision. The light is not nearly as bright as my spreader lights but provide ample light for fishing at night. The best thing about it is it only draws about 1.5 amps as opposed to the 10 amps that the spreader lights draw. I am pleased....

Justdocked,
Send me an e-mail and I will look to see if any pictures I have of my boat happen to have the light in them. I can attach a picture through e-mail.

Saw it on one of the boats in my marina.

It is twin tube, one regular white and one red for night vision. Low draw and circuitry that is not supposed to interfere with the boats electronics!

I am trying to find out if it is waterproof or resistant. Coming from GUEST, I would assume it is.

To Post a picture you have to have the picture someplace where it is available for the world to see, which is to say it has to be stored on some server space somewhere on the web. Once that is taken care of you have two choices on how to insert it. The easiest is just to go to the buttom below where you type in your message and hit the button that says "Image" it will cause a box to pop up where you will enter the URL where your photograph is located. The alternative is to manually type in the UBB code to begin the picture which is a set of square brackets with 'img' inclosed between them and then at the end of the URL a second set of square brackets with '/img' enclosed between them - do not include the single quotation marks.

That's all there is to it.

I like that,Gvit ... very nice setup.
But, I was wondering if overhead lights like that run
afoul of coast guard regulations for nav/running lights.

What I did on my boat was to take a broken Fisherman's
Green Light® and tapped off of the
regular low courtesy lights. It broke at the place
where the wires enter the housing, so I didn't want to
send it underwater anymore, but still lights up and
draws very little amps. It's mounted high on the
gunnel, so that it wouldn't shine directly on anything
higher than my knees. I paid $20 for it at local
Academy store. Very happy with it.

Supposedly, the green color does not attract bugs.
Can't wait for warmer weather to see if that's true.
Puts out plenty of light to see rigs, knots, baits, etc.

Justdocked,
I had a freind over today with a digital camera. He took a couple pictures of my light. I'll send them to you when he sends them to me.
