Default Skater Goes High Tech w/Nightvision

Check out my Nighthawk Thermal Infrared Camera that I just installed on my 28' Skater. Tried it for the first time the other night and it is awesome. Being able to see in total darkness and see things in the water like coconuts/markers etc like it was daylight is amazing. What do you guys think?
Here is a link of the movement.

I have thought about ordering goggles several times but I love the look of this. Not sure it would be as functional as the goggles IMO but very sleek

Problem with googles is that their not thermal. They work off amplified light. If someone hits you with a spotlight you go cannot see. Thermal camera are unaffected by lights. That is why went this way.
