At 20 it was an inconvenience at 299 it would ruin your day.
+ Vat so about the 340 mark. Pay me that and I'll sit on the back of your boat with flags

They could develop it even further by running a cable from the board, with a plug in to the back of the tow vehicle and you wouldn't even have to worry about batteries !!!.....

The only issue I have with the board is the length, making it a little unwieldy, if battery technology gives us lighter, higher capacity dimensionally smaller units, I definitely would consider something like a roll up strip, if LED's could be made to be in a flexible sheet it would be possible..my theory would be a clip on fan/battery unit onto the A Frame powering a 'rolled out to use, roll up to store, made of Tyvek or something similar. I think the vibration issue would be zero, but the buffeting from the wind might be significant in making it fail. Only an idea, Mr wave asked for one.

I'm not sure it's legal to have wireless remote operated lights? RF interference could cause a big problem.
