what type of lighting do ya have or want to put into your ride??? i thought ide give some of my tips to my system i use. it was really inexpensive and ive had no trouble with it. first i was tired of draging a colman lantern with me to fish on the boat. first on a small boat with alot of padding and plastic it can burn melt or cause a fire. and not to mention burn you. to remidy this problem i went to walmart to do some looking. i came up with small dome light size white lights. each have a push click on off switch on them. at $6 each not bad. i got three. i mounted one directly in the walkway between my center consoles (first pic). i fish from the front and dropped many things in that area and had to dig for flashlights. and mounted one on each side of the battery compartment cover in the rear of boat. for the rear fishermen. (2nd pic) these three lights at $18 with the wires hidden provide full floor light in my 17' fish and ski. except under the consoles where your feet are driving and riding shotgun. i turned the front one switch side down and mounted it just a few inches off the floor so i can click it on with the toe of my shoe. very easy. the rear i wired removing the switches and hard wired to a toggle swith to turn on both simultainously. this worked well for a bit. i then found that the live well and deck i fishef from at the v part of the bow was dark. sat up to high for the front light. i returned to wal mart to investigate my options. i in the clearence section found automative 12volt rope lights. the type in the clear rubber hose. they only had yellow but at $7 i couldn't ask for more. i removed the lighter plug and wired to the fuse box with a toggle on the dash. they worked just faboulous for lighting the entire deck. there was even enough left when centered to go through the front of the console on either side and have a foot to light up the foot area on both sides. the yellow doesn't attract bugs either (third pic) so for $25 and some unused speaker wire and a couple $3 switches ive got what looks much like stadium lighting im my CATILLAC!
