Lights on hybrid boat

Postby sharris » Thu Sep 19, 2013 11:27 am

Anyone put lights on their hybrid boats? I was looking at the boating regs and it says for non-powered boats between sundown and sunrise you need a 360 degree white light.

What are you guys using? I checked up a clamp on light (http://www.amazon.com/Aqua-Signal-Porta ... B001B07TMA) and it had some questionable reviews. Could I hard wire a light like this (http://www.iboats.com/12-All-Round-Fold ... _id.484454) in using a 9 volt battery or multiple 1.5 volts in series? Not sure if there is enough amperage to run it. Is a scooter battery the best way to go?

Walmart carries some LED boating lights for about $30.

A couple AAA batteries last a long time and both of the lights will fit in a shirt pocket...

We also have the older ones that take D batteries and they last a while too. We carry 'em but only use them when necessary as we hunt secluded waters.
What duck?
