Installed the Seablaze III's this weekend. Super easy with the included templates. I love only a 1/2" hole and a lot of surface area on the back of the light to create a good seal.







Now if we could just get this thing done and in the water I could get you some pics of them working!

Steve Stepp from Velocity says the water line should be 2-3" above the red stripe, which was 7" above the light. So that would be 9-10" deep.

I met up with a guy in Havasu this weekend to check out the 3 Seablaze 3 lights on his boat and they looked great. He had the ones that are white and blue which I thought was a great option to have. I think that is what I'm going to end up using

Default Blue LED's Illegal

We had our boat on the lift in our dock. Our BLUE LED light was on and a few inches above the water line. The local law enforcement appears and informed us it was illegal to have a blue light. I informed them it was actually supposed to be underwater and add a light effect. He said it was still illegal even underwater They told me to change it to white. anyone else have this issue?

It did cause them to miss my son's potato gun thou!

This is a joke!!! They need to use their time more wisely. People can tell the difference in flashing blue lights on the top of a boat or blue lights shining underwater.
