Most of our lights over here are of the submersible type.
They started of with the "bell jar " type which never seemed to work as promised and corroded easily.
However now ,with the sealed units and even LED submersible types, it seems to have solved the isssue.
The still recommend disconnecting your plug from the tow vehicle though when launching so the cold water on contact with a lit unit does not damage.

Do have running lights on trailer frame but never get submerged , so cheapie bulb fixtures work equally well.
Would hate all that routine of putting a light board on

cheers Dal

Oh ,and check out West Marine for some submersible products

The LED ones seems way too expensive though

Already installed .Picture of it below, (but it shrank when I got it wet)
Actually really would like an A frame but feel it would get in the way when fishing/tubing/photographing etc. (also couldnt get it in the garage) So have to be content with my mini version I made
It's good for my Nav light and flag, so solves a couple of my needs.Also folds down for storage;
cheers Dal

Anyone know of a supermarket that has orange carrier bags? Those prop bags are quite pricey :-)
