    Just wondering if anyone has used these water proof battery powered led strips as under gunnel lights. Trying to keep the skiff as simple as possible. Pull start engine and a single small battery to trim tabs. Im not trying to add any more wiring or switches to the boat. I figured I would install the Led string under the gunnel in a non permanent way and have the small 3 AA battery pack and on off unit under the back floor with velcro. will have to turn on each side separately. At $20 bucks a strip it should be an inexpensive and removable solution? If anyone has experience with these lights let me know would be interested to hear any feedback.

    Not sure I can post ebay links but these are the lights.
    200cm will cover an entire under gunnel side perfectly

    I purchased a similar product from Flea Bay and have not had any problems. I actually purchased one with a remote that changes colors, had to take apart transmitting box and split and solder new wires to split the wires and led strip for each gunnel
