It Summertime, Lets get those Docks and Decks Glowing

Summertime is here and I'm sure that everyone is spending alot more time outside with all the beautiful weather. However, the most comfortable time of the day is after the sun goes down and the temperatures get a little cooler. To help get your backyards, decks and docks become more inviting, you should consider adding some exterior lighting to you property. There are thousand of options available but I will just focus on lighting for docks and decks.

The first option is to get your waterway glowing. I suggest submersible HID lights that are installed 5' below the water and about 7' away from the dock. These lights will produce a light ring about 40" in diameter. The installation is simple and can be done by anyone that can plug in a electric cord.

The second is what we call pathway lighting. These lights must be installed by an electrician but are low voltage so no worries about anyone getting a shock. These lights a placed directly on the dock and give a glow to the left and right of the fixture to illuminate your dock or deck.

There are also underwater lights that mount to the pilings. These lights are generally LED and and you would need to have 1 light on each piling to get a nice even glow in the waterway. Manufacturers such as OceanLED, Aqualuma and Lifeform LED offer these lights. They are not cheap but, the look is beautiful.

How you decide to illuminate your dock is going to be based on budget but more importantly the look you are going for. Check out for all of the lights discussed. You will be surprised whats living in the water behind your house.

As the holiday weekend approaches us ...we want to remind you to use caution at night.  Adding LED boats to the transom of your boats can prevent many accidents this summer!

Already there are many reports of evening hit and run accidents on our lakes and oceans.  So please take caution at night. Drive slower if you are new to the water way. Keep your eyes open for swimmers at night and other boaters.

One of the best thing you can do is to add some lights onto the transom of your boat if you plan on late night swimming or anchoring out with friends in the evening hours. 

Before you leave for your day of fun ... make sure to do a

Navigation lights checklist

  • Check switches are on.
  • Check navigation lights are on and working.
  • Physically check each light is on.
  • Turn off cabin lights as it may reduce your ability to see.
  • If the vessel has a flybridge and weather permits, it is generally preferable to drive from there as you will have a better all round view.
  • If you anchor at night, show an all-round white light where it can best be seen.
And if anything is not working - make sure you replace it!  We have a huge selection at to make sure your summer boating season is a safe one! 

Happy and Safe July 4th to Everyone!

Eagerly Awaiting The Arrival of the Lumitec SeaBlaze X

John Kujawa and his team over at Lumitec in Del Ray Beach, Florida have knocked one out of the park with the developement of the new SeaBlaze X Underwater Light.

This new surface mount fixture will features a housing made of proprietary bronze alloy that will have a underwater service life of over 50 years. The lense is Gorilla Glass the same product used on ipads and iphones. However, the most important improvement over the previous SeaBlaze 3 is its increased lumen output, estimated at 2800 lumens in white, and the strobing feature. This strobe feature will allow serious anglers to attract fish to the surface much more effectively then traditional underwater lights. The strobing actions will make the light much more visible to deep dewellers such as sword fish. The developement team also angled the reflectors on the lights to give the light a wider beam angle and increase light intensity close to the transom. When it comes to product developement Lumitec goes the extra step to make sure all products ahead of the curve and torture tests them to the extreme. In my opinion, this is one exceptional light for the money. Lumitec has pre orders of over 1300 units and will start delivery of the new light beginning the end of April. is taking pre-orders and has the best prices available. Great job Lumitec!!!

Make Your Canal into an Aquarium

250 watt HID Underewater Dock Lights

I am sure if you've been boating at night recently you have seen homes with their docks glowing from the water up. This is done by installing a HID underwater light. These fixtures are availble in diffent intensitites and a number of different colors such as blue, green and white. I personally feel that a 250 watt HID is the perfect amount of light and creates a 40 -50 foot circle of glow depending on the clarity of the water. Another factor is the type of water the light is being installed in. Ocean water or homes that sit very close to the ocean should consider white or blue lights. For home located further away from the ocean or have murky waters, green always looks great.

 These lights typically cost around $4 per month to operate when running for a 12 hour cycle 7 days a week. They also improve dockside safety by illuminating the dock to assist in docking and boarding at night. There is no need to get an electrician to hook these lights up you simple plug them in and drop the light in the water. The attached weight will draw the light to the bottom and keep it upright and in position. They also  turn themselves on and off by utilizing a photocell that is built into the unit. However, the most dramatic thing about these lights is the amount of fish that will make your house their new home. has these light kits available online.  Give us a call to schedule for a free trial at your dock. You will see why these lights are becoming so popular.
