Therefore the dark hours where I believe uw lights would be most fun would not be when we'd be outside to enjoy them.

Maybe underwater lights would attract the insects,to a watery grave,to feed and attract the sea creatures. Leaving you bug free. Just a thought.

But potted LED's still go bad.

I'm replacing several unneeded transducers and through hulls with underwater lights. Faster to cut a bigger hole and install a Lloyds of London approved light than patch the hole. I have zero concerns that a glass lens intended for use on high speed battle wagons and yachts is going to ever receive enough of an impact at 8 mph to break.

And... If It Does?? - OOH, OH!!! :facepalm:
