This is the only photo I have of the LED's in one of our 770's, as you can see they are red and cannot be seen directly by anyone inside the boat without crouching down almost to the floor.

Seahawk V had LED dark Blue along each side under the tubes and these I got from Timage. Red is not a good colour

I've got a couple of these waiting to go on mine. I bought them from a local bike shop. They already have wires coming out of them so should be easier to keep waterproof than the solder it yourself types.

i went through this, lots of expensive stuff on the market - ended up buying some blue ones (off the net but they sell them at halfords) at about 5! they do the job, mounted in the lower rear of the seat pods and console. sealed in with sikka to waterproof them. blurry picture attched but you get the idea!

Only just remembered to catch up with this thread.

I did go with red LED's (sorry Andre) and I am very happy with results. Have used them in anger a number of times now, with customers out at night to watch the fireworks. They do not interfer with the crews night vision, but add comfort for the passengers.

I even managed to fit them without in holes in deck and some "easy" cable runs.

Regards
Steve
