Bolted it straight on to my ipilot bracket. The angle is adjustable. The top ones are only good at slow speed. The large one in the link is for when going faster and when the boat is planning

Perfect m8. We don’t move in the dark. Just looking too light up the deck when we get a run👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Just run an led strip inside the boat for unlocking...loads cheaper

Never found the need for additional lighting and generally return simply using your night vision, if any light is needed for anything then a head torch and or hand torch is fine for me.
Lighting can easily dazzle you if not put in the right place and in summer time, every insect becomes your mate!

I regularly night fish from my boat and find additional lighting invaluable.

The big spot lights are necessary for driving down the river at dangerously high speeds after getting discoved poaching private mariners in the pitch black and the led lights around the inside of the boat are perfect when gut hooking with inadequate bite indication when unkooking surgery is required.

Helps when pouring a big gin and tonic too.
Cutting a lemon at high speed and in the dark can be quite dangerous

I have the same LED strips inside the boat as Alan, Craig Beverley got them after he saw mine.

I also have a strip of red lights for preserving night vision, also doubles up as a mobile brothel.

I also have these mounted on suction cups so I can position them where I like, generally use them for flood lighting the front when travelling in the dark

I have one of these mounted on the back of the boat under the rod rests, illuminates the rod tops and with a simple twist shines into the boat/ahead when needed.
Gives plenty of light so long as you not WOT in the dark.
