    Are you wanting to illuminate your fish deck, like a back porch or underwater lights? I have two lights on my radar mast that I can move and point anywhere, but must climb up and move them by hand, they are your basic dock lights, they point forward. And I have the solar lights, one next to the electric nav/anchor light, and one on the fish deck. The solar lights I leave on all summer, they come on automaticly in the dark, its great for saving the nav/anchor light battery. The solar light on the back deck is real soft, good for getting up in the middle of the night to fill the ocean.

    I bought mine from a local Dealer and installed it myself. About $35.
    Although I saw the same one oneline at cabela's and bass pro. I have attached a couple of pics. Was a easy install.
    On your 26 foot I think you also have a sheetmetal tunnel that runs the insde of the cabin overhead. I ran all my wires inside that. Including the gps / fish finder for the rear of the boat. I also installed the switch in the dash.

    Default Lights Back Deck

    I have 3 lights on my back deck. Two fluorescent with yellow lens and 1 Halogen. The fluorescent I can leave on all night as the have low current draw. They give me plenty of light to fish by or to clean fish. I purchased them on line but do not remember the source. Cost was around $30 each.

    I picked my new one up off of E-bay relatively cheap. No problem running the wires in my application.
