Now we're getting somewhere. That's what I was looking for, creative solutions. Thanks again Kelson! What else have you guys come up with?

Added bonus is the area to slice things up if you happen to land one of the rare wild salami's.

Eh, What's up with kayak fishermen on the bay with no lights? Between me and the Navy seals zipping around that is not a great idea...
By law, they're only required to carry a flashlight or similar to warn others of their presence.

That said, I was on a lobster trip on a 80-something foot boat that almost ran over a group of a dozen kayakers while exiting the Santa Barbara harbor at about 11pm. Not a light among them as far as I could tell. I was impressed that the captain saw them in time to evade them, as I had trouble making them out when I knew they were there.

I did it.

Well, after a great deal of pondering and head scratching, this is what I've come up with.
I wanted something easily removable, stowable, and unbreakable. I used some thick rubber matting that I had laying around. The natural curvature of it fit the tubes nicely. The lights are attached with countersunk nylon flathead machine screws.
