WEST MARINE
Platinum Series Bay Blaze Underwater LED Lights

Compact, but don’t let the diminutive size of the Bay Blaze fool you—this is one of the most powerful surface-mount, LED underwater lights available today. Measuring only 3 7/8" in diameter, the three ultra-bright LED elements of this light produce an output of 400+ lumens, yet draw only 760mA@12V (120mA@24V). Extending only 5/8" from the hull surface, the durable anodized aluminum housing and precision glass lens will stand up to years of exposure to cleaning agents, antifouling coatings and the hazards of the marine environment below the waterline. Completely self-contained LED design in rounded housing with countersunk holes minimizes the need for thru-hull drilling, requiring only three #10 stainless steel mounting screws (included) and a 1/4" access hole for wiring.
  • Light Style: Underwater Light
  • Draw: 760mA@12V; 120mA@24V
  • Voltage: 12-24V
  • Fixture Dimensions: 3 7/8" dia. x 5/8"H
  • Mounting Hardware Included/Required: Included Warranty: One year

      Comments about Platinum Series Bay Blaze Underwater LED Lights:

      Installed 2 Bay Blaze 3-micro LEDs on transom of 23' bowrider. Installing the lights themselves took less than 30 min. Running the wiring through the boat and tapping into an open accessory switch at helm took several hours, but knew that was coming. Lights worked perfectly. Researched several LED lights through boat blogs for over a week. Tried T&H marine LED and it was clearly not high enough quality for purpose and less than 100 lumens. Came down to OceanLED Xtreme 4 Pro and Bluefin Piranha and Bay Blaze was far better. Less amperage draw per light with higher lumens per LED. Product is made by Lumitec, very high quality metal housing with what I believe is actually a glass lens. Very low heat, can be mounted above and below waterline per manufacturers instructions. The Micro LEDs are incredibly bright with very high water penetration. They are in the higher end spectrum of white/blue so they really cut dark/brackish water. I actually tested over 800 lumens for each light. For the price through West Marine at less than $130 per light, you absolutely cannot beat these. My only criticism is there is no silicon or rubber base to mount against hull so you must place them on completely flat surface to prevent leaking and use a substantial amount of marine silicon adhesive. I used clear product from West Marine. Worked great. Pro-tip..use template to mark position you want for lights and mask around edge with tape, then use sandpaper or abrasive to remove gel coat or anti-fouling paint. This will dramatically improve adhesion to hull and prevent metallic corrosion between light and paint. Good Luck!

              Just installed 2 on the transom of my 21' Fourwinns, look great even in the merky waters of the ohio river. for the cost you cant beat the amount of light and the ease of installation. Also when the boat is out of the water you don't even notice them.

                  Simply amazing underwater lights. There is a wide range of prices for underwater lights and I have used ones over $300. These lights are truly amazing for [$]. They are so bright, they light up 10 feet off my transom. Great for bringing up squid and fish. And I love how small they are for tight spaces under swim steps and trim tabs. Just and awesome light.

                  I installed my first one 2 days ago and am purchasing a second one now. Looks very cool! Install is easy. Putting a switch and the wiring took me longer than putting the light on. My wake is going to be a blue fiery flare going to my night fishing spot. Be sure to back fill the hole after installation with sealant to keep water in the bilge getting into transom.

                      I found very few options in underwater lighting but glad to have found these! I bully net lobster at night and with 2 of these I can illuminate an area roughly 12'x12' well enough to spot the bugs. They draw very little battery as well.
