Default TACO Rub Rail Mounted LED Navigation Lights?

Who's got them, who's installed them and how do you like them thus far?

Considering getting them and doing away with the old school deck mounted filament bulb Perko variety...don't want a pop-up either.

Pictures are always good if you have them!

I've had them for about a year, maybe a year and a half. No problems so far and super bright. Installation was very easy.

Looks great, Diel11. Slick boat.

I need to identify my rub rail to make sure they'll work - I'd also prefer a matte black finish which may require powder coating.

Necessary if I ever plan to get a 101# riptide mounted though.

Thank you. The back of the lights is very small so you just have to drill or cut enough to make room. I ran the wiring to the existing navigation plug in the front, so I can still use that if I want. I sometimes run a spotlight off that plug so I can do both now.
