Is there anybody running LED spotlights or light bars on the offshore boats for night running that could point me in the right direction. Watts, lumens, spot lights, light bars, etc... Or stay away from the LEDs for night running lights all together.

Thanks in advance.

I was looking for some advice on LED mounted spot lights or light bars to mount on my Contender for night running. Would prefer to mount on T-top to have them out of the way. Any details would be helpful before I go out and purchase the wrong variation of these.

Thanks in advance guys.

I think Capt Ty Trosclair fishes a 34' Freeman out of Cocodrie. Almost positive.

Thx for the info. I have the old style 360 pivot light in my shrimp boat. It works well, just is more of a beam than a flood. I was wanting to flood the front of the boat with light while running. My wants might not be reasonable. What kind of watts or lumens would I need to look for to do this with LED?

Go to and you can find a good rig and platform section. The coordinates will get you within a 1/2 mile or so. Usually quite a bit closer. Good, reliably info on ther page.
