Like we were chatting about in thb's thread here's a bit on lights. I think I'll make a separate post so guys can reference it if need be.

So I got a package in the mail from Oznium.com the other day and I’m pretty excited about it. I used their 4-chip LED’s in the past and loved them, so I decided to try out their other products. In my new boat I’ll be using their navigation lights, a bunch of the 4-chips, and a few of their 3w underwater flood lights on the transom. This post is mostly about the flood lights.

So this is my last/current boat, The Plytanic. I installed just a single 4-chip LED on either side of the console. They are pretty bright.

3872

I’m switching to red on the new boat. Below is a comparison picture of the floods(left), and the 4-chip(right). The AA battery is just for size perspective.

3873

The floods come in a nice aluminum housing. I thought they would be plastic when I ordered so it was a nice surprise. The Navigation lights are of similar high quality.

3874

Here is where you can really tell the difference, when we apply power to them.

3875

The floods are many times brighter then the 4-chips! The pics don’t do them justice. Here are some other comparison pics. Again the pics don’t do them justice, but if you can imagine it’s about the difference between looking at a streetlight vs starring at the sun!

I haven’t wired up the red 4-chips yet, but I imagine they won’t be quite as bright as the blue.

Cheers!

It is the 73-78". Sending you a PM with my cell if you want to come get it.
Cool, not sure if it will be quite wide enough, but I'll give it a shot if you can't use it.

Sorry for the lack of a call, and I also was hoping to make a post with some progress. However everything is on hold now.
My USAR team is sending a second deployment to Mexico Beach, to assist with rescue efforts from Hurricane Michael. I'll hopefully be back in a week or so. Stay safe guys.
