Accon is the Mfg. Same folks that make all the pop up / pull up cleats.
I've seen the light, nice stout unit, should last. Only thing that could be better would be if it could "pop up" by itself.

Thanks BillR, I got to have one. White plastic so I can paint along with the rest of the boat. Problem is I have four stripes that meet in that area. Thanks again Geo

The lights work well and really clean up the bow. I have had one on my Velocity for a couple of years with no problems but be aware that they are not water tight. If you want to keep the area under the light dry you must buy and install the drain cup and be able to run a small hose to an appropiate area. Also be sure you have enough room for the drain cup.

Gaffrig also has them in their Catalog. I am sure they are nice.

I thought someone made a motorized one that poped up when you turned it on.

If they do I hope sure someone posts a link. Motorized light would be a nifty little feature.

Someone made a motor for the Accone bow light a few years ago, but I don't remember who it was.

Geo 100,

I have a manual one on my Warlock, and the bow looks sleek and clean! I've included a picture so you can judge for yourself.
