Default Spot/Flood LED light recommendation

Hey guys,

Looking to replace my 2 flood/spot lights on t-top with some LEDs. Anyone have any recommendations? Looked at the LEDs West Marine offers, but wanted to get a feel for what else is out there

Thanks

LED's are the only way to go now. .. Make sure you go with someone that will stand behind your lights.
Know Bluewaterled's is big on the bass boats and pontoon seen.

Like those slim lights.. Low pro and just make sure you know what the rating is in Watts. I"ve seen the same light priced up there with the higher wattage ones so if you don't check, and know what your buying you can get bounced around a little on these things.
MIne are on the pickup. 4 18w in front and 4 18w facing backwards, and had two old spots so pointed them down in the bed but I light the whole landing up loading the bass boat in the mornings, and about 100 foot back is lit up ...
For inside light in the boat flood. Automobiles, spot.

Hey guys thanks for all your input. I prefer to work with vendors here on THT so I picked up 3 LED Spreader Lights from Gerry at Light The Night, great guy and was very informative. Thanks again for all the recommendations!

We just replaced 5 300 watt halogen floods under our tower platform with these LED floods rated at 1500 lumens.

Bayliss Boatworks fabricated flush-mounts for them in the fiberglass bubbles where the halogens had been. They look great and are indeed brighter than the old halogens.

I saw those at the commercial boat show last year... they were so bright you couldn't look directly at them from 50 feet away.....

Specs I've seen on 300 w. halogens are 5950 lumens so on paper your LED's are about 75% less. How do they appear in real world ? Did you replace 5 with 5 ?

I'm looking to replace 2, 500 watt halogen's but so far the LED replacements I've seen are a lot larger then what I would be willing to mount up on the tower.
