    Do you have any pictures of the lights on at night? How much brighter are the halides compared to halogens?

    Don't forget your sunglasses when you go out! Where did you find those lights at? What kind of generator do you have powering them?

    Here is a pic of my rig. Only thing different is the railings are now lower, they now hit just bellow the knee instead of above it. Ohh and it's now pulled by a Blue Dodge instead of a Chebby.

    From Canada and we only have a 3 month bowfishing season. Live on one of the Great Lakes and storms blow in quick. Need a good v-bottom boat. I stand on the front bench seat and some times one foot up on deck for bowfishing. Have a foot control troller. 15 and 9.9 Johnsons
    Wham-O Power Master.
    Daco wood shaft arrows.
    Roper’s Indian Arrowheads.
    Hope to upgrade someday.

    Built a new boat last summer. 20 footer with a 200 hp, 15 hp kicker, and 101 lb troll motor. First pic is when we first picked it up and second pic is the first trip out in it with some LA cats. Of course most wouldn't need/want the video platform behind the shooting deck shown in use in the last pic.
