Product Description

Easy 5-Step Installation For Fiberglass Hulls

1. Verify that the hull thickness does not exceed 3 or 80mm then select the location choice on your boat approximately 12 or 250mm below the water line. Drill using a pilot bit first to ensure there are no internal obstacles.

2. Loosen the cable connector at the rear of the cap, then remove the rear cap counter clockwise and place light and cap in a safe place until fixture is installed. Using a holesaw, cut out a 4.50 or 115mm diameter hole.

3. Clean hole thoroughly using 3M adhesive remover or a similar alcohol-based agent. Be sure to seal the core, if needed, with marine epoxy or 3M 5200.

4. Install the fixture using 3M 5200 or 4200 Fast Cure Silicon, just as you would with any other thru hull, then hand tighten internal locking ring. Once the ring has been tightened, lock the 4 locking bolts firmly against the hull. Next clean all excess 5200 from the surrounding area with 3M adhesive remover or a similar alcohol-based substance.

5. Re-connect cable connector, then hand tighten cap clockwise. Be sure to leave sufficient cable length for bulb changes and service ( + 2-3 feet). Connect bonding strap.

FAQs

Why should I put an underwater light on my vessel?
Underwater lights are a great addition to your vessel for many reasons. They enhance the overall appearance of your yacht and allow you to enjoy the beauties of the ocean even after the sun goes down. Underwater lights allow you to attract fish (a favorite tool of fisherman) and illuminate the natural wonders that lie beneath the water's surface.

  • What is your warranty policy?
    Our underwater lights are guaranteed for 1 year from purchase date. All other lighting products are guaranteed for life (not including electrical or light source). This guarantee does not include removal, installation or lamp life. Proof of purchase is required.

    How far below the water line should an underwater light be installed?
    Underwater lights should be installed approximately 12" below the water line.

    Should I put more than 1 Underwater Light on my vessel?
    Even 1 underwater light is a great enhancement to your vessel and your overall yachting experience. Depending on your budget, however, three or more lights will work together to create the optimal effect.

    What is the beam spread for the Xtreme Beam?
    Because the Xtreme Beam is under the water's surface and water reflects light, the entire surrounding area will become illuminated.

    What are the benefits of using borosilicate glass for the lens?
    Borocialiate is the most reliable cost effective lens available for this application. Using sapphire or crystal only drives the cost up. However we do offer this as an option for custom orders.

    What is the difference between Stainless Steel and Aluminum?
    Stainless is used on fiberglass and steel hulls for lifetime use. Aluminum is used only on Aluminum hulls.

    Do you sell an LED underwater light?
    No, we were the first to use LED underwater lights. We have the most advanced LED products available and LED is not yet bright enough for this application. We will reintroduce LED underwater lighting when the technology allows.

    Yes and No...we also offer surface mount fixtures for yachts that do not have access from the rear.
