Stinger Cree 5w LEDs. They are inexpensive, a REAL name brand, and IP68 waterproof.

I bought some last year and they were around $30 for a two pack. They also use less current than a 168 “peanut” incandescent 12volt bulb. Much brighter too. Only available in “clear”.

I even have them in the livewells, below the waterline, and they are still functioning as new after a year of real use.

Did they have a 3M adhesive to hold them in place?

No 3M stuff. They have two stainless steel socket head bolts with stainless nyloc nuts. They fit my skeeters original light mounting locations with only enlarging the screw holes to accept the bolts. Otherwise, they are capable of surface mounting.

The 3rd pic it’s hard to see. It’s in the little spot between the livewell fittings access opening.

Plashlights makes some high quality stuff. 50,000 hr life. They aren’t giving them away. Pricey.
