So I’ve been wanting to figure out “headlights” for night surfing for awhile now. My transom lights give more than enough output for the surfer, but sometimes navigating the boat can be a bit sketch! So I decided to build a set. The goal was to make them super easy to use, easily removable, and needed to look decent while on the boat. I ended up using vacuum suction cups and some cheap off-road lights. Coupled with a Milwaukee M12 battery for power source, and a few other supplies, I went for it. The final product is decent enough looking, but super functional. They even turn on/off simultaneously via a key fob. Stoked to get them on the water for a true test!

You do realize that white lights to another boat, makes them think they are seeing you from the stern? Extremely dangerous to you and other boaters, and against most waterway laws, so please reconsider.

Understand and appreciate your concern. I certainly don't plan to keep them running like a constant headlight. Hence the remote. I like the ability to light it up for a minute to see everything in front of me before surfing. The remote is a quick on quick off solution. No intention of leaving them on to blind everyone on the lake.
