The reason that they probably don't put them in there is from a safety standpoint, if the bulb cracked and there were fuel vapors in there...kaboom. Whatever you put in there make sure it is sealed, a totally sealed LED light unit would be my choice. for the same aformentioned reason of preventing an ignition source, I would NOT locate the switch in the bilge either, better at the helm. An unsealed switch in the engine space again could provide just enough spark to blow you and your honey up. good luck.

I'd go with some led lights...you can put them just about anyplace and they will not cause a spark...however...make sure they are independantly switched so you can turn one or 2 on ..either way...it's fairly simple to do..one on one side and one on another....
