And the best part of it all is because they are L.E.D's they comsume so little power from the battery! Great for those that dont have a genny but still want nice dinner lights.

CT doesent advertise them on there website. You would have to go to the store or call them, give them the part number, and see if they have them in stock.

I would like to do this to my 94 2855. Has anyone already done this? Part#'s and a contact # would be very much appreciated.

These lights are very nice addition.

Thanks,

Ryan

Hey cOps, this might be a stupid :hammer question but what did you use to make the holes larger for the led's to fit ? Wouldn't think a hole saw would be to smart, maybe a jigsaw ??? Also what did ya seal them with ? I bought some led's for the radar arch but want to put some on the steps also cause they look awsome and I want to do it right. Thanks

IMO, a hole saw offers a much cleaner & controlled cut than a saber saw. You can use a carbon or carbide cutter, just run the drill slower and maintain a firm hold so that it doesn't chatter.

Using a saber saw requires enough clearance to turn it thru the cut, not often a luxury on a boat unless there's no obstructions within an additional 6" radius from the intended hole. You also are better to use a fine tooth metal cutting blade so that the gelcoat doesn't get yanked off (chipped) since the blade is pulling away from the surface. Lining the intended cut area with strong masking tape can also help reduce chipping (with fine blade). Then file inwards to chamfer the gel and seal with resin or epoxy which will reduce the likelyhood of future gel delamination.

Problem here is I had to go to a specialty tool store to get the odd sized 2.75" cutter ($13 CAN).

One other thing I do is: After I get the “pilot” hole drilled I run my drill in reverse to "score" the hole area of the gel coat prior to starting my actual hole cut.

Yes a a hole saw makes a nice, clean hole. I also run it backwards just to make the first strike. When I removed my old square lights, I made my new pilot hole just above the old square hole and making sure the plate will still cover. Dont try to run the hole saw freely without first making the pilot hole guid you!

OK ... I'm in. I want to add the Seasence White/ Red LEDs' to our cockpit. I would like to have a 2 position rocker switch (Rocked up = white ... rocked down = Red). I'm looking for a rocker that will match the stock ones below (I'd replace the one on the far left). It would be like the trim tab switches only not momentary.


So what kind of a rocker switch would you call what I'm looking for?

I think you found it ... just down from the Blue Sea switches (in the link above) are switches by Sea-Dog (also Contura style)

Part #= 16501
Mfr. #= 420213-1
Circuit= SPDT
Action= On / Off / On

Link to switches I'm looking at:
http://www.go2marine.com/product.do?no=16499F

Previously I looked for "SPDT rockers" and came up with nothing that came close ... Thanks, I think that's the ticket.

Ok you hooked me. I just ordered 4 seasense white/red led lights. Jake, I have an 04' 245 and want to replace the cockpit light switch with the on/off/on rocker switch, like you. Did you order and receive the switch? Is it the identical switch to the factory one? Did you order the illuminated switch? Let me know so I can get one ordered.

Thanks in advance.

I couldn't tell if those had the two lights you were looking for. Please advise if it turns out they do. Also, do you want double pole double throw or DPDT?

I'm now looking for the same switch. I don't think it makes a difference if its SPDT or DPDT. We only need SPDT for what was discribed but we can use half of the DPDT. I'm not really that worried about whether the switch is lighted or not. But I would like it to be the exact replacement for what is factory, or as close as possible.

No, I have not ordered yet I plan to today. I'm going after the illuminated switch. I don't know if it's the identical switch or not ... but it's close enough for me (I think is the identical switch ... just not sure).

I see that I didn't put the correct link to the switch I plan on ordering ... I posted the non-illuminated version. I'll edit the above to reflect what we are talking about.

thanks Jake, let me know how it goes with the switch. I don't mind having one with a light, so if it is the correct switch I'll order it.

Jeff,
Thanks for reminding me ... I ordered the switch from my local Marine store ... they normally call when orders arrive. With your prompting I called them, they are checking into where my switch is and will get back to me.

I ordered the Sea-Dog Illuminated Contura Switch:
Mfr. #= 420213-1
Circuit= SPDT
Action= On / Off / On

If I get my switch prior to this week end I'll report back on next Tuesday (Aug. 7) with results.
