I have every light option and love night boating because of it. Nothing better than a slow late night cruise with music and a boat load of friends
I have every light option on my New boat, This weekend will be my first night cruise with them on

I bought these from Pontoonstuff.com. Don't have any pics of it in the water yet, but here is what it looks like on the trailer.
Easy to install. I have a rocker switch for a livewell on my dash but no livewell, tapped power there for lights.
Will get some on the water pics to share. 20190510_213434.jpg 20190510_213419.jpg 20190510_213608.jpg

Looks great. How did you attach them to your boat? I added LED lights to my boat 18 months ago and used 3M tape made to attach trim to cars. I stuck my light strips to the inside of the trim that runs the length of the boat. A week ago I noticed the strip has come loose for about two feet on the stern end on one side. I'll have to wait until I pull the boat out for the season to address this.

The lights came with a plastic channel, I pre-drilled them so I could add some stainless screws. Used the tape and drilled screws where I could, but on the starboard side I didn't have enough room for the channel to fit because of the wiring harness, so I zip tied lights to the wiring harness about every 2ft. boat has been in water for about two months and haven't had any come loose.

I just finished doing mine. I didn't go with color changing lights. I had a left over 5M spool of blue LED's. I used them for under the seats. Instead of Led strip for underdeck Light I used 12v 1/2" led rope light. I used this rope light to light the inside of my pool (off grid solar system to keep it pure 12V and safe).

It cost me a little over $100 to do. I paid $80 for the rope lights on ebay. Need plenty if 16g wire (red and Black), 3 snap connectors for the leds, 15' of 3m VHB Tape & a c couple spade connectors.

I wired the underdeck lights to the rear of the docking lights rocker. and the under seat lights to the open accessory rocker.

I cleaned the seat bases with denatured alcohol, then put the 3m VHB tape on, then stuck the LED strip to the tape. My experience with the 3m tape on LED strips suggested I use something better. I fished a power line from the console to the stern bow seat, then a power line from there to bow port seat, from there back to port rear seat.

As for the underdeck lights I zip tied the rope light to the rails. Ran power light back to helm.

I bought these on amazon. They are very bright. The mfg recommended only running them for a few seconds out of the water because they will overheat.
