I live in everett wa. and there is a boat store close by that is called harbor marine...they have them there for about 12bucks each...it was a simple add on and really lights up the swim step.....since they draw so little load..I tapped off the existing cockpit lights......

ok cool thanks! ill head down to westmarine here in town and see if they have any. was thinking of taping them into the existing lights in the cockpit area also. good to know that will be fine.

was also thinking about puting some back toward the transom under water to light the water up at night if we go swimming. could be cool.

I didn't see any of this style at WM....this place I go too was the only one I found with this style of lights...
as for swim step lights...not sure if these will work underwater...but they are completely sealed up.....so...maybe it might work..may have to run to HM to check them out again.....let us know what you come up with...

Default lights..

I think mine are about an inch dia...but the depth was closer to 2 inches since you have about 1 inch of fiberglass back there....I used about a 5/8 in drill bit and then used a round file to auger the hole out.....took a little doing but once I got it to just barely fit..I figured the rubber seal would work....let me see if I can find the name and model number of that light I have...it's all plastic and really does light up the step...
