    Hey Mark;

    I got some LED rolls off of 'the hull truth' These you have to solder the wires into the light. though it is great for custom lengths and flexible, they don't last in wet areas.

    i went with these for my spreaders after reading tons of good reviews. They only lasted about 3 years. Pretty dissapointed.

    I have a pair on our show boat with about 250 hrs on the boat and one of them is half burnt out.

    Afraid I can't recommend them.

    Mark - I put hella strip lights under the gunnels on the grady and hella round lights under the gunnels on the jihad and they have been flawless.

    I used to recommend the coastalnitelights but I had the same experience Ali did... They lasted for a few years and then burned out
    Now I use the Lunasea spreaders.... So far I like them

    I bought mine off ebay...the cheap Chinese ones, powder coated with all stainless hardware. They're awesome and to be truthful I don't take the best care of them. Don't let anyone talk you into buying the high dollar ones. My buddies bought the Rigid's after I bought mine and they've both had problems while I haven't burnt out a single L.E.D. Mine look just like the one below...18w flood pattern. I went two in the front firing forward and two in the rear kind of corner mounted.

    Oh yeah...squirt dielectric grease in your heat-shrink butt connectors then cover the whole connection with another heat-shrink tube...and you're good.

    Some Rigid Industries. Super bright and look good. They also have colored lens covers that snap on/off
