Default Underwater LED's

I'm trying to figure out what led light company to use right now and I'm so concussed. No matter what way you go it isn't cheap so you wanna get it right the first time. I'm looking at the Ocean led A3's that go into the drain plugs but not sure how brite they are. Has anyone on here used them and have pics of them in the water? I want to run 3 light across the back of my 28' cat, but what lights do you think would work best for me? the one thing i do know is that i want to go with blue. Thanks

You can check out coastalnightlights.com. He has lights that have been used by many fishermen for years and everyone likes them. He also stands behind his product. I haven't seen any better for the price.

MRoberts just put some on his 400ss and they are pretty sweet, pricey though! PM him, he can give you all the details.. There was a buncha LED threads that popped up in the last couple days.

I purchased two blue Lumitec SeaBlaze 3's for my boat restore but haven't installed them yet. I would have bought CoastalNightlights.com ones but wanted something that looked a little better when on the trailer. I got the lumitecs for $210 each from Northwest Marine Electronics.

One thing to note on the White/Blue Seablaze 3's is that when you have it set to either white or blue it is half the brightness, only full brightness when all on which is a white with hint of blue.

Do a search, there are several good threads on underwater lights. In alotta ways you get what you pay for and you need ALOTTA light to make a difference, especially in cloudy water.
