I remember BackwaterEddy posting up something regarding this. I'll cut-n-paste what he had to say... I'm sure he won't mind.

"This stuff is just way too cool not to recommend!

I just rigged a Frabill speed shack XL with 12V LED rope lighting (no big deal a few zip strips and Bada-Bing-Bada Boom, your done). My boat gets the full treatment next.

I got mine from "Platinum Lighting Inc." of the net, very reasonably priced too. You can get it in several different colors and also can be rigged to a 12V dimmer. A very good boat deck and fish house lighting system. It works great as a indirect lighting option for night fishing.

Very easy to work with, it can be cut to length anyplace along it's full length in 6" intervals, to fit you instillation needs. Just screw on another lead and cap the cut end, and you set, simple enough, even for me.

They say 20' will draw 9 amps max, they also recommend to not run more then 20' off one power source. They can be split with a splitter T very easily.

Thanks guys. I saw another post by Eddy but I must have missed that one. I'll be rigging up my Guide real soon now.

Where can I pick up some 12V rope light in the metro area? All I've found at the big shops (Menards, Home Depot) is the 120V A/C stuff.

    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.      
    • I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot.  The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market.  It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame.  I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process.  A video of it operating steps would be nice too.   It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.  
    • I have the hook 7 with down imaging/GPS/standard sonar, I have the lowrance lake chip for mine and really like it.  easy to use and good quality images on the screen.
    • I'm also in the market for a new pair of boots this year. I actually had a pair of Rocky boots that my wife bought me over 16 years ago but it is high time to replace them. I need a pair that lace up because of my prosthetic right foot so the Muck boot types are out for me. I think I will just get a pair of LaCrosse Ice Kings. What amount of Thinsulate is needed in a warm winter boot? I found a pair of Ice Kings on Amazon that says it is only 400 g. of Thinsulate but it is rated for -70. That doesn't seem right to me. Shouldn't it be much more Thinsulate?
    • Friggin A!!!!!! 
    • Anybody have any input on these? I just bought a bigger boat and am looking for a bigger sonar. I found one of these for what seems to be too good of a deal ($520)
    • In the end all you need to see is when the jig disappears into the fishes mouth!  I've been using a Aqua Vu SV, it's old b&w with very small screen but it worked. But this year I won a Marcum camera from Thorn Bro's, (thank you). Lookin forward to trying it out.
