For those of you who have these installed, do you know who the manufacturer is? I called the dealer to order some and they wanted $350. Wholesale Marine sales some made by Innovative Lighting for $129 which look the same. I was told that all Supras are pre-wired even if you don't get the lights installed when ordering the boat from Skiers Choice.

Heres a link to the lights I'm looking at.

Randy, buy a light bar or make one yoruself, thsoe dockign lights suck. I have them on my 22. An overhead lightbar will work much better for docking. Teh only boat who's true "docking" lights work good that I've been on is the Tige RZ2

I made this one using monster tower clamps, boss acc. powder coated bar, and pilot amber beam lights. I have about $260 in it.

I will second Adam, the stock docking lights suck...They only light up the water directly under the bow and maybe 5 feet out...

Adam, what wattage are is each light?
Old    Adam Curtis (acurtis_ttu)      Join Date: May 2004       04-07-2008, 7:49 AM Reply   
standard 55w halogen bulbs, with amber lens. If you wanna spend the money HID lights would be something to consider.

I disagree that docking lights suck. Perhaps it depends on how you unload at the dock? Typically when I am heading back to the dock I pull the bow up to the dock and the person getting out to back down my trailer hops off from the bow. At night the docking lights are awesome because the really light up the dock and make it very easy to unload from the bow at night.

Of course, that's just my opinion.

I should have said compared to tower lights docking lights suck. I had the same boat as you with docking lights previous to this new one. The stock docking lights are better than nothing, but they don't even begin to compare to a decent set of tower lights, and would be much easier to install.
