I think they put that 3 spoke wheel on all boats with hydraulic steering. Hydraulic steering is different than rack and pinion, in that it never lines up in the same spot, so a 4 spoke wheel might look misaligned, so they use the 3 spokes.

Stock LED's while running ~ 25 mph ... It shows up great, though the photo isn't the best.

You guys might want to try the hot tub industry. They use LED lights and light lens that should put out a lot of light and run off 12v. They even make LED that will give you as many as 15 different light shows.

I read you are not supposed to run with the lights on because it heats up the lense and when the water is re-introduced it can fracture it. You had any problems?

Led Lights In Minnesota

To anyone living or boating in minnesota

I recieved a email from the minnestoa DNR and they state that it is iligall to use underwater LED lights in this state for fishermen but it is ok to use for waterski boats heres the email i recieved from the dnr (The use of lights just pertains to fishing. As long as you do not have any fishing equipment in the boat, then the lights done matter. They are only illegal to use while fishing. ). just wanted to pass the info around so they know the state rule . but it is ok to use LED inside the boat

I thought that LED lights were low energy and thus low heat?????
