Deck Lights

Published date: September 26, 2012
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

My old Mac 25 had deck lighting in the back which I used often so I missed that feature and knew I wanted this on the new boat. I chose LED lights and wanted one for the cabin entrance and also one down low for a dinghy entry/outboard check light. I also wanted to make sure while sitting in the captains seat that the lights wouldn't ruin the visibility at night. These lights are bright white. These are both on the same switch on the new switch panel I installed opposite the stock panel. I leave them on when I go to shore at night as they don't use hardly any power.

    I placed it over the hole closed by the plate hiding the winch bolts. The main problem here was to route the wiring to the panel. Just now there is no separat switch besides that at the light itself. Published by: MS Classifieds
