Been thinking about adding a Metal Halide but I tried 2 of these LED deck lights just for the hell of it to replace my 50w halogen ones that draw much more power than I like.
Each led is 2900 luminous.
Tried 2 a few weeks ago to start with and holy shit what a difference and very little draw.
So I replaced all 6 (4 on tower, 2 back of roof)

Nice! Ronnie do you have any down below shots? We are in talks with Steve about buying a 28 and finishing it off as a spec boat. Thanks.

I went all LED this season. Spreaders, Nav and interior and am so glad I did. Like you Raider Ronnie, I had spreaders that were just too consumptive. I don't have a generator and had to keep a dedicated battery on the deck just for my spreaders. Not only are the LED much brighter, but they draw almost nothing. The technology can get confusing and you can buy real junk if you do not do your homework.

Down below,
V berth pics ?

Yes, just to get an idea on options. My old 28 we did a bunk to either side and a forward head. We are thinking of doing the same way on this one but it's an open canvas right now.

Those look real nice. Looks like when we know what those are there will be a run on them

I'll be at my boat early thursday and will take some pics then.
My V-berth is nothing too special.
Some shelves and plywood bunks (no cushions)
One thing in mine I would do different is the head.
Mine is dead center between the bunks (not enclosed)
If you have to sit to drop the Obama's, it's way too tight even for an average size person like myself.
I would do an enclosed head if I could.

So which spreaders did you go with?



To be honest I don't know the brand name .
I was in RH Scales in Westwood Ma. picking up something for a truck and they had a display on hand with 4 different types.

R.H. Scales Company, Inc.

So not something pushed as "Marine" but the housings are all aluminum powder coated black w/stainless hardware & tinned wire so I'm confident they will hold up as good as most labeled "Marine)
My cost was about $69 per light.

I have rigid on my boat and they work great. 3030 Lumen each with a 2.5 amp draw. Very small but very rugged. This will raise herring effectively not as good as MH...but if you don't have a diesel generator or don't want to lug out the portable this will work very well. I have seperate LED deck lights these point directly to into the water and aft from my hardtop...great for landing fish, docking too.
