I kind of strayed away from hps because of the fact that im in a tracker 1648ncs, didn't know how I would manage to get that weight mounted on the front of the boat, curious as to how you did it as well.. Looks nice.

Frank thats exactly what I did. I took the star washers out that come with the lights and used stainless lock washers.Sprayed my brackets with flexseal. Sprayed my reflectors with high temp white and it does make a difference. Ought to be a killing machine. The small screws are stainless, the bolts are not.
