At some point in the near future, I would like to install underwater LED lights on my '05 XStar. I really like the Shadowcasters SCM-10 lights, but would consider the Abyss S1515.

I'm trying to decide where to mount a pair of lights on transom to get the best light dispersion.

Option #1: Mount pair of lights above the exhaust which is just a few inches below the swim platform

Option #2: Mount each light on the bottom corner of transom (white rectangle in pic).

Has anyone added underwater lights to their XStar? If so, where did you mount them?

On my Malibu I had one light strip right in the center that was roughly five inches long. It projected a ton of light. I doubt you need two lights to get the job done. Mount it about half way between the platform and the exhaust.
