Yep, it's quite usual that light won't shine through plywood

When this thing is complete, you should consider towing it down to the local McDonalds car park every Friday night where you can rev the engine, bib your horn, flash all your lights and play some toons?

It's too good not to share with like minded people.

I think that, um, fishing, may be more his scene. No matter how much he denies it.

Just got home, fantastic weekend in the rough stuff and loads of jobs done did have a problem when fitting one of the courtesy lights, the rear one, it is a white Hella LED and is just below the rear of the seat pad facing back, as I drilled through it I hit pure steel, seems there is a metal plate sandwiched in the gel coat anyway 5 drill bits later and lots of sweat it is still not done, will have to take a jigsaw to finish it off next week, the red ones either side of the front of the seat pod are fitted. I also bought a nice waterproof Lalizas fused switch panel, that will let me have on off and auto on the bilge, also two settings for the courtesy lights, rear deck are in white or sides in red for night helming.

Here is a little video of the Lumishore lights on a RIB about my size


Can't wait to illuminate grubby UK waters

More pics in the morning
