    as long as we don't sink it in the process, we can use mine

    I use LED scuba lights when I walk, gigging flounder. They run all night on 4 C cells. A green lense might be better for distance and attracting fish. I made a green lite out of a 40 watt floresent bulb and a 12 volt inverter from a rv store. Put that in a clear plastic tube and it works well. Lot more lite than you get from a store bought one.

    After looking at swim platform/transom lights at the local marine supply >$1000.00. I went to home depot and purchased the same lights for about $40.00 in their pond section and mounted on the top of the trim tabs. This is out of the water when planing. The lights are encased in plastic and I used stainless brackets/screws to mount. They have been installed for several months now with no problems.
