On my boat, my courtsey lights switch has 2 positions, up & down. My white courtsey lights come on when the switch is in the UP position, and the LED'S come on when its in the DOWN position. If I had underwater LED's, I'd wire them to come on with the rest of the interior LED'S.
Quick question. When buying the underwater LED's, do you order white or blue ones. All the pics I've seen, the lights look BLUE, But I was told that was just the hue of the water making it LOOK blue.

That is the way mine is and that is the way mine will be wired up.

The whites are $210 and the blues are $220. I think the blues look better....

You need those blue lights, they sure would go well with your boat colors! That way, next year @ CSM, you can chase John and Monica in the middle of the night!

I just purchased/installed the Abyss S600 Blue lights on my 06' X2. They are very easy to install but be carefull of the screws they provide. They are not very good quality. While I was screwing two of them in, the heads broke off. I went to the local hardware store and purchase some heavy duty stainless screws and didn't have any problems after that. I only installed two lights for now. I will post some pics next week when I get back from Lakein' it. I hope they are worth it.........

Whoa! How did you go from thinking about it to having them installed in 24 hours?

Got the itch for the holiday weekend and picked them up from my local dealer. It only took about an hour and a half to install. Very easy.....I just wired them into the storage light circuit (Courtesy Light Switch in the Down Position) I hope they look as nice as some of the pics.........
