Default 28 Skater Gets New Lighting

Just installed some Lumishore SMX150 High Intensity LED underwater lights with color change controller. Pics taken in daylight with brilliance set on low. Can't wait to see them in the water. They are surface mount and require minimal holes in the transom. Low current draw also. What do you think?

OMG you compromised the transom with screws!

Would be cool if it lights up the rooster tail.

Put some running photos up when you can.

Ditto on the running pics. I bet they'll look great in the water.

Some lights like that use the water to cool them. Make sure yours aren't some like that. I'd hate for them to overheat before they ever get wet.

I will be running over the holidays. Doing some engine work right now. I will use the go pro. The lights are led and have no issues in or out of the water.

They look sweet! I've been debating on whether or not to do it on my skater- was thinking about doing it over the winter. You're happy with that brand?
