Underwater Lighting

Can anyone recommend where we can purchase bright/durable underwater lighting?
We are having the boat hauled out in September & would like to install at that time.
Thank you,

I did some research and found the actual manf. of the lights below (Jiawill). I along with 8-10 friends all put in a bulk order and got the lights shipped direct. We ended up buying ~34 lights and 9 Bluetooth controllers (you can control the lights from your phone)... They've all been in over a year and work/look FANTASTIC!!!
I have a 15.5' beam and put 4 lights on mine, wish I had done 6 and one on each side as well (I'll be adding those next time I haul out)...

https://www.amazon.com/Jiawill-Under...7754617&sr=8-8


Below are the price breakdowns for each of the different models. We all got the WKU-60 (WRGB) (also the ones listed on the Amazon page). I'll probably get 2 more 60's for the stern and 1 of the 120's for each side towards the back (lighting between the boats at night when people are crossing is really nice)...

WKU-60:Exw price USD71.4/piece
WKU-120:Exw price USD118.6/piece
WKU-180:Exw price USD180.6/piece
Bluetoothe Controller:Exw price USD24/piece.
Red/Green/Blue/White/RGB led color can choose, we can accept Mixed order, the price will be the same for you.

If you have any questions, feel free to IM me directly. If you have a few friends that would like them also, you can split up the shipping costs. These lights ARE NOT "light" in weight, VERY solid and durable...

you could always order a pair off of Amazon and see if you like them, then return them and buy these direct...

Drop over the side squid lights are on eBay for $20
No holes in hull or slipping required
Profit.
