Learned that one a long time ago. Skiing is only 2 hours from San Diego (and 5,000 of elevation)! ;-)

I did a similar thing to my boat, 'cept I got the LEDs from the 'net. About US$6/foot (30 LEDs). Another US$1.50 a foot for the waterproof sleeve. Cut the strip into 3 LED segments and put them around the boat, in compartments, engine bay, etc. Stuck them in place with 3M 4200. Worked out very nice.

The fishing guys love those cheap LED ropes for under-gunnel lighting but with a rib, that's not really possible. Do you have some pictures of your boat?

If you want something a little less expensive, but requiring a bit more fiddling to look good, try Oznium.com (US)

I've got their LED floodlights for deck lighting and as trailer back-up lights, and red and white strip lights on a PVC pole for night dive marker light (in lieu of a dive flag. Entire light ass'y coated in surfboard resin to waterproof.)
