Perko Trim Tab Surface Mount Lights

Underwater lighting is all the rage these days. These lights are used to attract fish, improve ambiance or create a striking visual effect at night. Perko has introduced simple-to-install 0178 Trim Tab Surface Mount Lights.


Boat owners can have all the benefits of underwater illumination without drilling additional holes in the transom, according to the company. Mounting directly on trim tabs already in place, these LED lights require no additional holes below the waterline. The beams of light can be adjusted by moving the trim tabs. Available with blue or white LEDs, the energy-efficient Trim Tab Surface Mount Lights produce less heat and use 1/10 the power of standard bulbs, the company says. With a 15- degree beam angle, the white version produces 75 lumens and 324 candlepower, while the blue supplies 27 lumens and 207 candlepower. Rated for a service life of 50,000 hours, the 12-volt, 7-watt lights feature completely submersible, non-corrosive, molded black polymer housing. Measuring 4-1/8-by-1-5/16-by-1-1/4-inches, they come with 8 feet of electrical cable, as well as removable brackets for horizontal or vertical installations. They retail for about $499 per pair.
