LIGHTING YOUR BOAT WITH SHADOW-CASTER® PRODUCTS
Certainly, more lights spaced close together will provide a more even and continuous glow. The SCM series come in a range of sizes of 4,6, and 10 LEDs. Smaller boats from skiffs up to 21ft (6 m), can be covered with one light on either side of the transom. The size of fixtures chosen typically depends on budget and desired brightness. Smaller skiffs are often adequate with one light in the middle. For larger boats using the SCR series, typical installation starts with two lights and one for every additional 5ft (1.5) of beam width over 3 meters.
By far the most popular choice is a full color light that will do any color and can accommodate any water condition. Bimini blue is the most popular single-color light. It creates a pleasant island glow around your boat regardless of water conditions. Generally, white is only recommended where pristine clear waters are abundant. Consider our blue and white for this condition as well. Green is a popular choice for in-shore fisherman as a way to attract bait fish. Red and ultra-blue are great when doing a red or violet themed lighting design for the entire boat
Shadow-Caster® has a variety of accent lighting and LED NEON lighting strips available. Consider SCM-AL-LED for areas where the mounting of the LED strip will not be directly visible. The SCM-AL-NEON and SCM-AL-MINI-NEON are better for areas where the mounting location will be in the line of sight, as they provide a pleasant looking continuous glow. The choice between the two is generally determined by size requirements and bend direction required for mounting.
Baitwells, hatches, and step areas
Consider the Shadow-Caster® courtesy lights SCM-CL series available in single and multi-color versions. They provide a pleasant down firing light, available in black, white or stainless finish.
