I joined this site not to fight about oil but to meet other owners. I recently traded in my 88 prostar for a new x30. I am interested in adding lighting to the tower is there any after market systems that will work with MC tower set-up. The dealer pricing for OEM lighting is ridiculous.

I think '07 and up towers are already wired to the switch so all you need to do is find the lights you want to use drop the wires down from the tower and hook-up.

With some slight mods we've mounted the Roswell Spectra C6 and C4 directly to the factory tower mounts. Basically you need to drill a hole into the landing pad "cover" and then bolt light bar to that, it looks factory other than the wire harness sticks out a little bit. If you have bimini I think it covers the wire harness!

I'll try to snap some photos when a boat comes back in for winterization this fall.

I would not do light again, they are worthless except for docking.

you read my mind, I have always wondered, "Are lights really that useful?" They never seem that bright when I have seen them on the water...

does anyone surf with these things? i would tend to think they would be great for lighting up behind the boat at 11mph with the way the bow is up in the air???

Riding at night is dangerous and no one should do it, that being said if I were to ride at night a 1 million candle power spot light is what I would use. That way you can light just the wake AND find the rider when they fall.

Tower lights are nice for docking and finding all of your stuff at night.
