Re: sailing goodies

Through Hull lights can be SUPER expensive, or not at all. Be sure to look around. A company in FTL recommended by West Marine quoted me $200 - $800 each, installed. A gritty old boaters store that's been around forever carried the same product starting at $60 and gave me an hour long instruction on how to install them myself.

That said I motored past a sailboat equipped with these at night about two months ago, and it looked as close to Eden as you can imagine. Deep blue lights lit up around the boat and the sea floor below as the owners took an evening swim. Breathtaking. I've also seen power boaters with blinding white coming from beneath the outboards, also a very cool look.

There are also companies with through hull CAMERAS! I haven't found a decent price yet, but I'm sure I will eventually!
