    What products/manufacturers are being used by my fellow microskiffers? Looking to light up my compartments and under the poling platform.

    That's a little obvious. I was interested in specific brands and sizes.

    here is one I sell alot of, by the MARPAC company. it is a water resistant baitwell light(LED) it works pretty darn good for small boat floor lighting, as well as all enclosed areas. they sell for about $12 each an come in several colors. They are small enough that I have them installed in red and white, for at anchor (white, most light) an running (red, plenty of light, but EASY on the eyes)
    best part is you simply drill the hole were you want it, an screw on the provided backing nut..... done, well add power LOL

    Is red easier on the eyes than blue?  Where do you sell the lights at in Central Florida or just giggle MARPAC for the lights?

    Blue sticks out worse than white. That's why the Po Po put blue lights on their cruisers. ;)

    The red lights give enough light at close range at night so that you can see around your boat while running, but do not emit enought light to off set your retinas from being able to see other objects on the water at night.
    I like to look at airplanes an how they light up cockpits at night, lots going on in there, an lot more going on around them at night.
    They are on the shelf at sport city marine in ocala, fl
    am if we dont have the one you want on the shelf, you can still buy what you want an your lights can be dropped shipped to your door.
