Well, I dont have a performance boat to make all custom, so the dinghy it is. Added some lights last weekend. What's the rule on running these lights (both in the boat and underwater) while moving?

Thanks, been a lot of fun. Pull 4 kids on a tube last weekend, did just fine. She runs a little heavy with a couple adults in it though.

Illegal in the bay. I believe once in international water you are good to go.

We spent some money on our LED's. I have not had Dana Point Harbor Patrol hassle us on them yet. I get yelled at all the time for speeding running around on one engine.

If they are white your probably not going to get hassled, blue then maybe.

Thanks. How many did you add? How bright are they at night..are the pictures a pretty good representation or are they brighter/dimmer?
It takes a lot of light to get the water bright. White is the brightest way to go, but we already had blue LED inside so I wanted to match.

I have 2 of these lights but they each draw about 6 amps and 2 is overkill, so I talked 1 in the center.

When comparing to other boats in the marina, this 1 light is brighter than others on big boats with 2 or more.

Make sure you aren't drinking if you are running those things.. Saw a couple guys get popped in Parker this weekend like that.

Looks like you are missing the Boat Whipz Disco Stikz. It is like a beacon to tell LEO you are ready for your free t-shirt.

You missed the Vegas trip in September. Robin Leach told us to F off while meeting Shania Twain backstage. It was excellent.

Someone in our crew did a bad impersonation of Robin and he took offense to it. I was trying to get Robin to punch our guy in the face. We then broke the VIP room at Fizz in Caesars.

Haven't had a drink since. So that's 3 times.
