Just a quick little fix from the old lights that barly lit up at night. I replaced the old original square lights with these new LED's. Just cut a 2 3/4" hole and insert :arr . Now it lights up the back!

Thank you. I went to bass pro shop and seen them there for 34.99 each, with 18 led lights in each. Canadian Tire had better ones that are bright white, with 22 led's in each for 14.99 each , so I purchased the canadian tire ones.

Canadian Tire is a big chain store like home depot. The one I went to, The number is 905-857-5425, you can also go to www.canada411.com and search for canadian tire in toronto. Im sure bass pro shop in the united states, or any tractor trailer parts shop will have them.

i have the same square ones on my boat as well to which i can say that 75% of them dont work, so i took your advice and went to crappy tire.
So... i went and looked and i also saw those, but im not sure if they were it since they were 2 colour ones.. red and white.
maybe i will buy a couple and replace the reds with blue :D

Yep those where the ones, The LED's will light up red or white depending wich wire you connect, Red wire makes them light up red, White wire white. If you run a 3 wire from the switch to the lights, and use a 3 pos. switch, you can use left on(white) middle (off) right on (red).

I went to Canadian Tire today and saw the lights they carry.
Brand is seasense and they are in Tennesee.
I am sure you can find a local supplier

heheh ...
was thinking about that and since red light is doesn't interfere with night vision, is going to be a bonus :)
all i have to do is set up a rezistor to dim them a lil bit so it don't look like the stage at the local strip club :D

I did mine a few years ago with a similar light from West Marine. Mine are only a four diode unit but still 100 percent better then the original rectangle lights. The units I chose light it up nicely with out being overwhelmingly bright. I would like to install some brighter ones as well on a separate circuit for when I need the additional brighter lighting.
A job well done!!!

Hey jim, Oakville is a nice place to be. I do all my boating on lake simcoe. I was going to try georgian bay this summer, but since I'm fairly new on a bigger boat, and I know lake simcoe very well, I decided to stay there.

LOL, I meant Orangeville...thats funny. Oakville is Wayyy too expensive.Caledon and that area are so scenic. I figured you had a good drive for boating up there. I am spoiled, 10 mins and we are at the boat...

We moved back to this neck of the woods 7 yrs ago. Loved it up there, but too much driving and too much money to live in a house.

Thanks for lead on these lights. I never bother checking CTC for any marine stuff but these are way cool. Just grabbed the last 2 from the Ajax store. Man I almost went blind when I tested one off a battery....definately will need a dimmer.

like i said ... definately a 3 or 4 position switch with different rezistors to allow for different levels of dimming...
i know from previous experiences... those suckers can get really bright !!!
imagine turning them on at night when you have your night vision goggles on...
dunno about you guys but i would definatelly feel like :hammer the someone :cool:
