Cockpit switching panel

We are installing a flood light, cockpit lights and two under water lights.
We would like these to be independent of each other and have access to them at our stern steps in the cockpit. We want these for boarding the dingy and arriving at the boat at knight. We also plan on using a remote which we have already purchased for arriving at the boat.
My question is:

Do you think this panel with four circuit breakers would do the trick?

Is there a better solution for the switching?

It seems maybe circuit breakers are a bit over kill for doing the on\off switching?


WeatherDeck™ Waterproof Circuit Breaker Panel

The cockpit lighting will not be the string of lights, it will be deck lighting.


LED Flood light





Thank you,
Chip

That is what I plan to use when I revamp my navigation lighting. I think it will do just fine.

For our applcationI am now thinking the "Water Resistant Fuse Panel" is going to be the way to go,not the breaker panel.
Thanks for you help,
Chip

Just ordered the WeatherDeck™ 6 Position, White Waterproof Fuse Panel
We called Blue Sea Systems and they said they are not offering the white color any more.
We wanted white so we jumped on one still for salel.

We chose the 6 position as we have plans for four switches already and we have the room for the six position panel in the cockpit where we are going to mount it. That way we have two extra, for now
