Funny you say that actually, rear seat and A frame with a further twin LED lights is being fabricated at the end of the month, should be fixed on by mid June. Had to wait for new engine to go on before taking measurements.

Hoping it won't add too much weight. Currently sitting at 46mph no problem.

Just out of curiosity why do you want so many lights. Have you done much night time boating?

Honest answer, they look cool.

The furthest night time boating I'll be doing is down an estuary to a mooring.

Too much light will screw up your night vision...

Yup, even the light from the instruments will be annoying. You will have everything dimmed to minimum. The nav lights from passing boats will be painfully bright & leave you with after images.
Ditch the bling, it's not cool to look a tit.........IMHO😄

You're plainly just not understanding how cool they look.

You don't need night vision when you can illuminate the whole of Largs

Ah, of course, that explains the need for the disco system too!
