View Full Version : Installing underwater lights

08-05-2013, 07:18 AM
I plan on installing some underwater lights this weekend, have watched and read enough to feel comfortable with drilling into my hull. One question I have is, if I seal wire hole and screw holes with life caulk, can I put the boat in the water and use it in a couple of hours? Plan is install Friday night, and wakeboard Saturday morning. anyone with experience on cure time for life caulk would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I used 3M 4200 on mine, launched the boat an hour after installed with no problems.
