Default wtb 12v setup for boat

I am looking for a 12v setup for my small boat. Prefer LED but open to other options. Doesnt have to be the best money can buy just something that works.

Hell naw, I was just going to be a good Samaritan and tell him where to get the best deals on lights. Think I figured out how I am going to build my rail, now I just have to see how bad I will get raped for having the welding job done.

I've got a really interesting setup that costs probably sub $50 to make all together, if you have some of the stuff already even less.

It's a 100watt 12v underwater system, I swear it puts out as much light and is clearer then my 3 500 watt halogens above water. and Much quieter ;0

If you're interested I can pm you a parts list and simple instructions, build time is around an hour.

IMHO: Incandescent light under the waters surface shows off flounder then anything I can compare it to, I haven't tried HPS but, I can compare it to LED and for myself, those 2x 100 watt bulbs under the water's surface is just beautiful.

Go with the 50 watt LEDs, get them with the extra warm chips. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

where is the best place to buy them? Also under water or above, which seems to work the best?

I order my LED's from dhgate.com or aliexpress.com. Look around and you can find some good deals. I haven't seen any extra warm so I may end up buying the chip and replacing it myself.
