Hey all. Some quick questions on lights.

First, I've done a ton of looking on tower lights & have come to the conclusion that they are ridiculously too expensive (at least for my application). All I would like would be to have a couple that would face forward for docking/trailering at night (have no intention of boarding/skiing at night). I favor the Piaa automotive driving lights (the 001x is what I'm leaning toward), but am unclear on which ones are the "projector" type & how to mount them (I'd like to go straight to the tower with some sort of clamp - no mounting bar if I can get away with it). Anyone have experience with this & if so how did you go about it?

Second, has anyone added interior lights? I'm just talking about the type that would go up under the gunnels & add some accent lighting (I guess you could call it mood lighting ).

Thanks in advance for any info.

Um I definately have interior mood lights that run on 12v dc or ac. Our website isnt the best but their are some pics. Email me for info
The starburst led lights can go in the babystar or any other light we make. We already light jetted tubs and bathtubs or even gazebos.

Hi Tracie,

I just installed those same lights (6) total.
Here is a link to some infor on them. I can try and take pictures of the way I mounted everything and get them posted....just not completed 100% with the project. If you eamil I can at least tell you where I got the lights for a great price.

Thanks for the reply. I'd like to see a pic or 2 when it's done, plus an opinion on how well they work. (No pressure, this project is a little ways off - just trying to get all of the major costs lined up first).

Thanks, but not exactly what I was thinking of (no colors anyway). I had the idea from seeing the rope lighting that is used as accent lighting in homes. (I think some Malibus have what I'm thinking of.)

Tracie i have two sets of rope lighting about 12-15' each going from the engine compartment all the way up both sides of the boat and then under the dash's. These arent led lights but 12 volt rope lights i got from walmart for $8 a set, yes $8 a set X 2 = $16 and they have different colors too, mine are blue. They look cool as are bright but not overly bright

That's exactly what I'm looking for. I didn't know that they made 12v rope lighting. What section did you find it in - auto section? (I hate to be in Walmart for very long!)

Tracie, I have a brand new in the box X-treme 5 light bar that originally sold in overtons for $300.00. I am selling it for $250.00 plus shipping. It's a nice brushed alum.
