    Just wire the Hot side to what ever switch you would use during night time hours (Nav Lights) and be done with it.

      I agree with 3 wide, I don't see how it would become hot running off the 12 volt system. Leds draw very little amps. Wire it into your nav lights, add a fuse if you are worried about it.

        Your mechanic is a smart guy. I would not install it either. That 'cool' look, to simply impress the fish, could burn your boat to the water line

          That is what fuses are for. Not sure I can imagine your scenario. Lots of people are running underwater lights.

            Your mechanic is a moron. The way to get it installed is to find a new mechanic, at least for electrical work.
