Extremely durable and easy to mount. Initially I tried to wire it into existing navigation light harness. I had a lot of issues getting the light to work; however, I was able to talk directly to installation experts who were very helpful and patient. Eventually I purchased a custom wiring harness, which installed perfectly in 20 minutes. I would recommend purchasing the harness along with the light. I added the navigation light option; although, I was't a fan of how they are constructed. The wires are extremely thin and the green light was not well seated. Super bright! Can't imagine hunting without it!

WOW is all I can say I have used many light bars on my Boats, rangers, and trucks NONE compare to this light. AMAZING is all i can say and if ya don't have one you are missing out. Easy to install, and tough as nails
Purchased this light with the additional navigation lights installed. Very well designed and built. Light was installed on a 18 ft. Tracker Grizzly. Easy to locate, mount and wire to the boat. Like the fold down capability of the LED assembly within the housing. All kinds of bright. I would recommend adding some support/strain relief for the nav light wire splicing during installation. The wires are tiny.
Just got it in last Thursday and used 4 nights in a row, can't believe I waited so long to purchase. Makes any other fixed light and certainly a q beam obsolete. I found myself running the river as comfortable as if it was during the day. Very easy to install, I have a 1654 tracker and had to drill casing in order to fit my bow but was no problem at all. I would suggest it to anyone for the convenience of it much less the safety (hands free compared to my old way of running trot lines with a q beam). I wish there was a way to post pics or a video of us running at night as that's the only way you could really appreciate it.
By far the best boat light on the market!
Awesome light! It's everything the discription claims to be - I have yet to see a duck boat light better built!
I had my mud boat sink in early December after hitting a submerged log at speed. The boat was recently pulled off the bottom of the Eno River in North Carolina. I was curious to see if the LED light bar would still work, so I hooked it up to a battery and it still worked just fine! Was dirty and nasty as all hell, and not pretty, but this thing still worked! Very impressed as the depth was 17 ft at the time and would've been higher earlier in the year after all of the rain we had. Awesome quality and product. Backwater motor was also good after having it cleaned and serviced at a local shop.
I run a full time waterfowl guide service in central Florida. All my hunting is though small cuts and dark trails! My southern led is a game changer! No more holding a spot light or using a head lite to set up decoys. If you don't have one.... Get one!
Just installed the boat lite on my 2015 excel replacing the lights from the excel. The boat light is the best light on the market by far! I have had many different lights on a few boats in my years, and this is the most durable and brightest light out there! I can't wait to use it this season!
Great light very durable, fit and finish is great. Also its fully adjustable feature id great. And this light is extremely bright. Its 6500 kelvin is a brilliant white.
Exceptional quality, tremendous amount of lumens spread perfectly across your field of view, and a reasonable price. You won't find another light bar this good
The Southern Lite LED Boat Lite is the baddest light on the market hands down. I bought a brand new Xpress boat and this was my first addition to it. Perfect flood pattern and an excellent spot projection for any terrain. An excellent addition to anyone's rig. I would highly recommend it.
