LED Underwater Lighting (with no hole in the hull)

We are in the process of bringing out a new line of Underwater LED lights that do not require a hole to be drilled in the hull. They work by way of induction. You simply epoxy the light fixture to the outside of the hull, then epoxy the power puck inside the hull.

For more information, please see Genuine Marine USA's website.

Worked, seemingly, for a while yesterday but the site was blocked by my virus/malware protection. Opens blank page today ... go figure!

Same way you can charge certain cell phones on a wireless charging pad, or some pacemakers. I wasn't aware of marine applications like led lights though - makes me wonder about leakage (electrical, not water). Huh, interesting.

I question how useful it actually is if the inductive coupling only goes through 3/4" of fiberglass (according to the website). The hull on my 22' FG boat is almost 3" thick.

I expect that any decent size boat hull is going to be at least as thick as mine if it is not metal.

Great concept! Like an electric toothbrush. As long as stray electrons are controlled and enough current can pass through the more stout hulls (like mine)!

Need a research vessel?

Love the idea, would like to hear some real-world experience with it.

there are videos on the web... but at $229 per puck... they will be a luxury item that I will have to pass on. I like the idea though.

Is your boat a Boston Whaler?
I will say with some certainty that a 22' hull that is 3" thick is truly exceptional, even if it is foam cored. 3/4" solid fiberglass would be considered very thick.
You can still have underwater lights, though, I just did an installation where the owner was paranoid about punching holes in the bottom, so I built fiberglass "tabs" on the transom to hold the lights.

opened fine for me. I very much like the thought of not having to drill!
