Swim platform light?

Recommended Posts

bamabonners

I have seen pics of boats wih lights that shine down on the swim platform from the rub rail. Anyone know where you can get these aftermarket? Are they wired into mls? If so, what turns them on?

They are just the shine down LED lights that go under the back grab handle. Not sure where they are hooked up to but I think the underwater lights. Hope this helps.

I had Bakes install them on my boat Bakes sells them and they are tied into my interior lights.

Sorry to disappoint you but it's only the reflect of the underwater light in the hull...

The underwater light beam is going in the tiny gap between the hull and the swim platform and because of the hull angle above the swim platform the light is reflected in the hull and then on the swim platform.

I have the same effect on my 2011 VLX with the under water light on.

Sorry it's not easy to explain...

Actually that's incorrect...there are lights available there I've had them. Seems as if I've only seen on 247s and 23s though for some reason. Haven't seen any 2013s with them.

This is the only picture i have of the lights at night. it was on a long exposure, so you see what the actual effect is on the swim platform.

Here is a picture of the boat without the lights on. you can see the LED housings just below the rub rail

I saw them at the factory on a few boats, but didn't realize what it was until recently. they are just a small rectangular light - just a few inches long and fit just inder the rub rail. I want to use it for loading and unloading the boat at night, which we seem to often because we usually stay out till dark.
