Looking for good led spreader lights to mount on the side of my boat for docking at night. I am looking for quality but not break the bank expensive. I see a lot of inexpensive led lights online but question the quality of them. What have you guy's had good luck with?

    I have (2) Lumitec Caprera2 red / white spreader lights. I love them. Not cheap but they are bright A.F. but dim-able

    I run a couple of these and am very happy with them. They’re about $60 a piece but come on sale for $50 occasionally.

    Installed 2 of these for deck lights on a buddy's boat and they seem to be very well made and have a nice spread

    I will vote for visionX. I have 6 of their lights on my boat. They have been excellent, and the one issue I had was handled on the dock from my salesman!

    I got a 2 pack of 60w 115v LED flood lights from Amazon. White housing. I think it was about $30 for both. Only installed one and replaced a 150 watt halogen. The LED is way brighter. Had to make a bracket, but otherwise a solid upgrade.

    I've had these on for the past three years and still going strong. Identical to the West Marine branded ones, but fraction of the cost. Someone on here recommended them back then.

    Do you know what waterproof rating they have? Couldn't find it on the website. Thanks

    I use Obcursco Pontoon. It has great length. Super simple to use. Just plug in and it’s on. Can easily be connected with additional lengths. Hardware is included to install in any configuration. Perfect as accent lighting or as ambient lighting. You will be very happy with this purchase. Highly Recommended!
