Hit it with a little light, slow down and pick your way through it

    Jack we must use the same light. Can’t beat it on the H20 plus I use it when tracking deer at night or checking the yard for critters. When the power goes out I rotate the light head and shine it on the ceiling as well. Very versatile!

    They are some good lights. I do like the fact you change the battery out.

    Here is a small LED light that is mounted on the front of my boat. It is enough to see by if you are idling along. Any more than that I break out the spotligh

    Get one that will work on a 20 amp switch and you won’t need a wiring harness to turn it off and on.

    Watts/volts = amps if i recall correctly

    Have you tried a LED light bar on the front? I duck hunt so I run an 18" light bar on the front deck as far forward as I can get it and I have two 4" lights on the back of the boat. 2 switches on the battery box and you are in business. Nothing fancy for sure.

    As far as that GPS suggestion, you need to be proficient with it before you try it running across a lake like that. I wouldn't suggest it on Conway as those boat lanes narrow up in a couple of places that would probably leave you with a lower unit missing when you hit one of those fine stumps.

    Funny how going over a log in the dark tends to make a fella cautious. It's a long trip back to the launch cold and wet with prop all bent to pieces. Been there myself

    I like a hand held spotlight like a brinkman attached to a pole about 3 feet long. Gets the light up and cuts out glare in the boat.
