Ryan E's 03' VLX I got completed and my VLX done in blood red to match the guages. And yes the swim platform does glow red in the water

Awsome setup! What are the lights under the swim platform? It looks like you have several.
 
By Neil fett (bigasswake) on Saturday, February 21, 2004 - 2:59 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
9 sets of leds. Covers 180 degrees and shines in the water.

Also did a black light setup



They are water proof just in case you wondered

Not that hard to install, All lights are ran off of one wire .The lights I build my self .I actually install lighting for a living so if you need any help with lights or just install pointers give me a ring

Do you know how many LED's you can run in on one line without having a voltage drop? And do you have to install a relay on the line?

 
By Neil fett (bigasswake) on Tuesday, February 24, 2004 - 2:21 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
I have 30 different fixtures in my boat all ran off of 1 set of wires. No need for a relay.

Just for your info: It takes 24 led fixtures(96 bulbs/diaodes)to equal 1 amp. And that is the most powerfull light that I make(blacklight). 1 neon fixture takes 6amps transformers, glass tubesand no tollerence to water

Neil, are you selling these lights? If so, what would you charge for 10, 20, and 30 fixtures? Can you put a close up pic of what your lights look like? Hard to tell from the lights in that jar. Just looking to get started on a project like this.

Also, please give us more information on those transom lights.

Im going to take some pics of the transom lights right now


I un-oiled the platform before the install

The reason I un-oiled the platform is so I could use mounting tape to get the angles I wanted with the lights.

So I take it these are waterproof lights? Are these lights facing back towards the boat, or out behind the boat? How well does it light up the water at night? That would definitely add some bling bling to the night surfing sessions.

Damn dude can you post some water shots ASAP!
That is sick!

 
By Neil fett (bigasswake) on Wednesday, February 25, 2004 - 12:17 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
100% water proof. Lights will aim out into the water.

I will go out and take pics as soon as it stops raining here in texas.

That is one awsome setup, I am picking up my new boat in a week or two and have been buying all kinds of LED's. I showed my wife and she said "now I understand! Your NOT the only idiot!"
......I think she really dug the blue.
Again, Great Pics!

got any pics taken a bit further away (like from outside the boat), so we can get the full effect. Nice job though.

How much for a complete set of Blue lights for my SAN?

 
By Neil fett (bigasswake) on Monday, March 01, 2004 - 10:21 pm:    Edit Post Delete Post
Blue lights just for the platform, Or the entire boat?


stephen (scubastevebps: The whole light setup ran $300 for all the lights in the boat and the swimplatform. Plus it took me about 3 days to install the lights.

Email me if you need any info neil@smithwarenetworks.net

Whay did you use for a plug on the Swimplatform in order to remove it from your boat? If you don't have a plug were did you run the wire through the boat?
