Underwater Lights

I always thought that these were "big boat" items, but over the weekend I noticed that the local boat rental place installed them on all their boats. After some investigation, I see that they make a 12v system for about $600. I think that they would look damn cool on an MC. Has anyone ever done it or seen it on an MC?

I think I remember seeing something like this in the "bu" or Centurion catalog. If I remember right they used them under the transom in some configuration.

Yeah, most of the big boats have them at the stern, but some of the really big boys have them wrapping around the entire boat. I found this boat, which has just one light on the stern, but it really puts out alot of light.

Here it is out of water:



And here it is at night... pretty cool!

That BU looks like the lights are shinning down on the water from above the swim platform not from under the water.

Jim@ BAWS will install a set on the transom of his personal CSX for night fishing!

Look at the pic a little closer and you can see the water illuminated aswell from under the platform. I kinda like the idea of the transom light above the platform. Maybe MC engineering can find a way to incorporate some LED lights into the rear grab handle so that they look nice and you don't immediatly see a light affixed the back of your boat.
