I ordered mine from Walmart.com. $31.30, no tax and free shipping. It mails from a Maryland distributor.

Just ordered mine off Amazon ....$29.93 shipped. Figured I'd rather get one and not need it, then get almost done installing and need it. I can always sell it if I don't end up needing it.

Has anybody put underwater lights on the sides  or back of the standard transom?

i was thinking about that instead of having a second bracket welded on.

Dub9, some have had brackets welded on and many have added underwater lights.  Caution you to use quality lights so no problems.  Try using the search engine as I remember someone documenting the project

I searched, and this was the best thread I identified. I did read that many had the bracket welded, but I am not sure I wanted to go that far. 

That is why I was considering just the transom pan (or whatever it is called). The spacing wouldn't be as far, but maybe the effect would be similar. 

Maybe even one on the back and one on each side perhaps. But then the side ones would be in the "flow" of the water underway, and maybe that isn't ideal.

Underwater lights on the sides?  Do you mean under the water line but on the sides of the tubes or under deck lights down the sides.  I also had the extra bracket welded on for future use.

I put two lights on the center toon and added the bracket for the right toon. Looks great but have not had a chance to use it yet.

Following back up...  Fplcman did you ever install the LED lights inside your toon under the seats?  Just wondering how they turned out and any tips you may have learned along the way?  I'm hoping my toon was built today and will be here in the next week or so.  Would like to tackle that project before it gets to far into the summer.

Not yet. I plan on doing it over the memorial weekend. The weather has not been the best here in Indiana.

I meant on the side of the motor pod, but looking into more, I thin the easy mounting position may be above the water line.

Fplcman - How did you mount the underwater lights on the center tube?  Did you drill holes in the toon?  

(Great DIY!  Thanks for taking the time to post all this great information!)

I am in the middle of writing up a nice how to for all these upgrades. Takes more time then you think to put it on paper. Lol. 

I have all installed plus more.

I just drilled small holes then used the screws that came with the lights. I am really impressed with the lights. I am going to take a good picture of it at night so I can post it.
