    Default Updated underwater transom lighting

    Added the 2 additional lights on the weekend, so here's what I've got so far.

    The 2 additional lights are still below the water line, and punching the whole through the transom was still contained within the storage compartment, just above the ballast bag feed lines.

    Was then able to tie the wiring to the back side of the ballast bag feed lines to keep them out of sight for other than a small wire coming through inside.

    This was the flatest surface that existed on the transom in order to maximize straight out light dispersion. The are just slightly off 90 degrees hence why they are not as straight as the centre.

    Then tied into the existing wiring that was in place for the first light, and "voila" (that's french).

    Thought about other locations, but the centre light is already quite bright so wanted to create a larger area of light.

    Night pictures forthcoming after July long weekend.

    Until then...

    Looks awesome, should light up the wave nicely if you want to do some night surfing.

    this install I really like. Those two oval looking likes on the port and starboard side of the transom are very nice. much better profile than something else I've seen. I'm interested to see your night pictures, bet it looks great. Have any pictures of the actual holes you drilled for each light?

    It's just a 3/8 hole like the manufacturer recommends. Sorry no picture of it. Very simple install.

    Hopefully night pictures coming in 2 weeks.

    All,
    I've been clicking on every UW LED thread from Supra to Moomba and this is the best picture I could find to ask my question.
    I have a 2008 Supra Launch 21V and I would like to put my UW LED in the same Port / Starboard location as the Moomba above ( MikeMork ). But in my access area ( next to the motor ) doesn't go below the waterline. Was this the case with the installation above and what modification was needed to run the wires to this location?

    Appreciate the input!

    Sorry for the delayed response. Yes the Supra has a different transom design than what the Moomba has. If I recall your is a lot flatter. It was pure luck that it works for the Moomba, as my alternate solution was to have to drill into the hull and then up into the storage lockers.

    But double check as I was quite surprised how deep the lockers were and that it actually was below the water line. Definitely a 2 person job to help make these steps easier. Probably a 2 beer job to do this step.
