Did you have any problems with the center light contacting the bow roller when loading or unloading?

Good for you.



About your boat. Looks like a wooden boat. Did you build it?



Did you add that area painted White where the lights are bolted to?



How about a few more detailed pixs of the boat?



Lights:



3- 500 watt units?
