I ran into you last year at the Shoreline ramp. You were still fishing with the camo boat. Yall had a barrel full of rays and we were looking for them flatties. Your new boat looks great.:clap Are all of the lights hps or mh or some of both. I'm still running halogens right now but I have been looking into hps. I have heard a lot of great things about them in murky water. Just don't want to over do it as I only have a 2000 watt genny. Any advice would be readily accepted!!!:letsdrink

Great job. Can't wait to see it light up the bay. I keep looking at the pics which is a pain so I thought I would try to make it easier for all to see.

Only question I would have is how does the noise from that generator not resonate into the H2O from a metal boat? I also have a metal boat and also have a 5500 watt generator, but I wasn't going to put it on there without a different muffler on it. I have been hoping to get one of the quiet Honda 2000's. BTW, boat looks nice!

thanks guys for the comments. were hoping on getting the inside sprayed this coming wensday, and then wrapping the sides of the boat.

well to stop the noise we are useing a 1'' rubber matt to sit the genny on. but with the fan drive we can get over fish without spooking them .

five prongs- when you use hps you can run a bigger bulb and not use the amount of power as halos. best combo for a 2000 watt is 4- 150 hps from econolight and and 4-300 halos from econolight they have the best deals on the net. i ordered all 10 of my 500 halos and and 20 bulbs for 75 dollars shipped.
