Best interior LED boat lighting??

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I am tring to decide on what type of LED lighting for my boat. I am looking at the 60'' rope style which looks good in the catalog but I am not sure how bright it is or how good it mounts up. Has any one used this type? should I consider another type? Thanks in advance for any advice.

I saw a boat that had about 4 sets of LED lights mounted to the sides of the boat. It really lit the boat great, and I plan on adding some to mine. I think he got them from Cabellas.

I would check out www.fishhousesupply.com. They are an FM sponser and have a lot of different lighting options that can also be used for boats. I plan to buy a few pieces from them once the boat is ready for them. I am currently redoing a 14' Lund.

I would not recommend the rope lighting. That is what I have been using in there and it just doesn't quite cut it for me. Maybe I am too picky, but you're better off with something else.

I would a avoid the rope lights as well. I had them a couple of boats back and was not real impressed. Just my two cents....

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
