Submersible Light Board

In an attempt to reduce the things to do at the slip I was wondering if anyone has experience of the LED lightboards that you can submerse in sea water. Do they work and do they last. If so which one did you buy

Thanks

Dennis

I done away with the light board and use lights from led automotive they come with a 10m cable and have a lifetime guarantee and are waterproof to 1m they are modular so the number plate lights fit on to pins on the back

Be sure they will work ok if you have a canbus car.

May need to put resistors in somewhere to avoid pulsing.

I bought lifetime warranty submersible led lights. They consist of 144 discrete led's for each colour. Of the 288 red leds I'm left with 2 still working, as long as it's not daylight. Keep your receipt!

the led automotive ones I rate very highly I have used a lot of these at work and other than poor connections and reversing them into things they have never been replaced to do away with one set of connections I got the ones with a 10m lead as said they come with a lifetime guarantee so I won't be worried I have also used cheap led lights of eBay and most are crap I just fitted a set 3 weeks ago and they have water in them already you get wot you pay for

Bear in mind that trailer reflectors need to be triangular. £44 also seems quite a lot for unbranded lights, most likely from Shenzhen.😨
