We just bought a Nordhavn 43 (lucky us!), and we are having some modifications made, including underwater LED's. Right now, I am leaning toward the surface-mount Lumishore lights. We can go with four of the SMX20's
, or two of the SMX100's
. While the total lumens are about the same, the SMX100 has a 90 degree beam, while the SMX20 has a 60 degree beam. Also, the price for the two larger ones is 2x the price of the 4 smaller ones, net. I'm wondering if anyone has an opinion about the tradeoffs here? The boat beam is 15', and we are adding a 2.5' swim platform extension.
