1st, I'm glad you got some Flounder.



2nd, that type clip on light is "VERY" dangerous to be having on a boat.



There is NO safety ground, there is all kinds of places for moisture, water to get into that switch. The clip on mout can fall off at any time. Please go spend a few $ and by a Halgon light.



DAMN! I hate to see stupid stuff like this. It's VERY dangerous!

Huh?

Dangerous LOL your kidding right first of all Gigging is the most sympistic Way to get Flounder in the the 1st place.

Seems as though a few want to make it seem so Scietntific or expensive one doesnt need Loud Gas guzzling genorators Hallogen lights that will light up a stadium or blind the guy Gigginga mileaway howeveri guess its a good way to get rid of everyone else. Not to mention breathing the noxious fumes 2nd leading cause of Boating Deaths!

The simple 12v 1 battery 1 Gig 1 man method can be just as or more Productive. Worse thing that could happen you blow the 12v inline Fuse if it gets wet or once every two years replace the Clamp light for 3.99

In short its Safe for you and the environment peacefull and productive and a heck of alot cheaper!

Now imagine if every idiot, brother, cousin, neighbor, orfriend ran Generators and Big Hallogen flood lights.

Nice catch. I could see cause for concern if your light was running on 110 volt. Say you were to knock it off the first thing anybody would do would be to reach in the water and grab it real quick. But with 12 volt, fish on brother. Simple but deadly.

Sorry. I assumed you had 110V going to it.



I have a bunch of those clamp on lights [I have actually bought better ones now from Grainger] I use around the shop in the winter time with heat lamps in them. The spring clamps tend to not hold the light in the correct position all the time. This is on land with no moving forces. It would be worse on the water.

Yep and lack of info posted on any forum leads to this. No where was it posted what voltage was being run thru the light's yet it is designed to have 110V run thru it.



General forum info:



Lack of info on a forum is always a problem. At least till you get people trained. Pix's really do say a 1000 words, but lack of pix's can not tell the whole story. So many times the full information has to be preyed out of the original poster.
