I bought two - 16' rolls of green LED's to put on the side of the boat. Those that have them, show me you pics and install.

OK so it`s probably not what you were anticipating but it gets results.

Where did you order your lights from? I'm seeing some on ebay and amazon I'm just curious which ones you bought.

I ordered mine off of Amazon. I think they were $16 for the set.

Im curious how I am going to wire these in. If I run them where I wan t, then the power wire will be running over the side of the boat and that will look trashy. Trying to figure out how to do a clean install.

looking into DIY myself. I'd say depending on where your wires need to be, you may have to drill into your boat

I'm hoping to avoid that at all cost.

I used to be into rc airplanes and most of the battery packs I used I would solder little quick disconnect plugs on them since we would have to change them out after a flight on the electric planes. I haven't seen how these hook up yet but it would seem that a similar small plug/connector would work, that way I could run the lights on my boat and use the connectors on both ends of a 3 foot cable. One to the battery and on the other end one to the lights. A quick easy connection that doesn't require drilling.

I have put LED's on as my navigation lights and had to drill a small hold under the rub rail in my bass boat. I also helped a buddy do his pontoon and he chose to have them over the side, but the battery is on the outside as well, so there was no drilling.

What kind of boat do you want to install these on? This might help determine what your options are.

Here is what mine look like.

Bogey, I have a set just like yours I need to install and a set like Fin&Feather's. I ordered them at the same time and have them here.

Problem is, I can remove the rub rail without taking off structural pieces that are riveted on. I dont want to mount the nav lights to the rub rail as they will only get crushed ruined.
