Underwater lights

Recommended Posts

Cboom12

I’m looking to add transom lights to my 18 a24. Seems the shadow casters are the most popular, but at $800 a light I think I’m out on those unless I go single color. Is the 10 inch light  necessary? What are the factory lights? Any idea on price of the factory ones? Pics appreciated as well.

I have had the Shadow Casters. I haven't seen anything that compares to them. There are factory lights on Greatlakesskipper.com sometimes. You'll just have to look over there on that site. The factory lites IMO, are mounted in the wrong location. The wedge blocks a lot of the light.

Now I need to remember to deploy wedge when we are chillin' at night.  :-)

They offer more models then what ever $800 light you are looking at. So are you specifically looking for RGB? 

I will say though, less expensive lights either drop in build quality or light output, or both.

Are the factory lights adequately bright? They are $500 a set on bakes. Which SC lights do u have? I’ve been looking at the scm-cc or scm-10. Would the next smaller SC light be enough?

I had the SCM-10’s. I made hdpe spacers on that boat  the hull wasn’t flat where I mounted them  

How do I measure if the smaller light is enough for you?

Water clarity plays a role in how bright they seem in the lake.

Valid question. I guess a better question is would the factory lights do a good job if mounted in a better spot. I really just want the sc, but they are pretty expensive so I need to justify it to myself lol.

Factory lights on our vtx. Imo they are pretty good. Our water is so so as well. I do agree they would be better it mounted outside of the wedge but still pretty good.

Also take a look at liquid lumens. They are super bright.

Anyone have experience with this underwater light?  https://www.boatpluglight.com/collections/transom-mounted-led-lights/products/the-titan-2-drain-flange-light-16-000-lumens

I like the idea of not having to drill holes.  This one is 16000 lumens and can be ordered in several colors including an RGB color changing version.  Do they hold up well?

We've sold and installed a few from boatpluglight. They have worked pretty well and we have had no issues.
