slightly warm to the touch... they get warm fairly rapid then stay at that temp constant... very mild... not nearly warm enough to harm anything... not nearly as warm as the whole boat gets under a black cover sitting outside all day

abysslighting.com... there is a similar unit to what i installed available in white... the M-500... not bad just the drilling sucked... they really light the interior of the boat up... the blue isn't too bad for bugs but MAN... the white ones bring them in
Abyss shows a m-500 and m-400 they refer the 400 as an overhead with spot lenses in white or red/blue or red/orange
they refer to the 500 as a courtesy light with flood lenses in same colors.

has this changed? is the 400 the one you would recommend? And what is the deal with the "bi-color" Can you make it blue only?

the unit i installed in place for the interior courtesy lights is actually an overhead unit... the M-400... its an exterior overhead unit... it is suited great for this application if you want a lot more light... the M400 i can promise you the actual light is blue its not shot through a blue lens... i haven't seen the M500 to know for sure but the folks at Abyss Lighting are great to help w/ any problems

as for the bi-color thing there is a common ground on the unit and there's color coded (how sweet of them) power wires... i put a cap on the red and hooked up the blue... it was that easy... (to be honest i don't even think i needed the cap but i put it on anyways to be safe)...

my only recommendation is that you wire the light in and make sure its what you want before doing anything more costly and permanent
