    Default Spot Light, Dock Lights etc.

    I'd like to hear what you guys are using for lights on your boats. I'm thinking about lights sufficiently bright to navigate a dark interior river and find your way back to camp after dark. Your opinions on deck lighting would be appreciated also.

    I use HID lights driving lights. They sell them at shucks they work we'll and can see really good with them. Way brighter than any lightforce. here a pic of the boat with them used as tie downs. I also have a hand held one which is also HID.

    I would look at LED type i put a 40 LED light bar on the grill on my new truck. I had light force 170's on my old one. difference is night and day
    light force are 375 lumens each i believe my light bar is 4800 lumens.
    Outlaw Autobody in Soldotna carry them and at least one outfit in ANC but i don't remember their name. not cheap but also have single 2" cube LED units that will snap together 480 lumens if i remember correctly.
    mounting lights will be an issue as if not on front of the hull you will get terrible reflection.
    here is a web site but i don't see the lights i have there

    on sag river last fall made a pretty good jump off a gravel bar in the dark not much fun. found water and hardly missed a beat

    hope this helps
