OK so i'm building my boat for bow-fishing/gigging. I'm making a removable light rail and want to run LED's if possible. I see the seelites and 400w hps are popular but i really think its overkill for what i need. I'll be in the gulf flats of north Florida in about 18" of clear water. I'd like to have a setup with 2 batteries in parallel. The batteries will only power lights. 27w, 50w, light bars? Whats the options? Also I'll have a generator on board for back-up only. I really don't want to run it if i have to. But if i do how to i figure how much converter i need? We're talking a max of 6 hours run time on the batteries. I've looked at the 12" 36w light bars on amazon. A 4 pack for $40 i believe is what it was. Or the 4" cubes that are 48w for $50 you get 8 of them. I literally have no idea which is best and I don't mind spending the money up front for quality $200-$400 range. I just don't want to drain batteries with big lights that I dont really need for gigging mullet and sheep head 6' in front of my boat. TIA

i'm over here in south mississippi done tried them small led light bars some up to 90 watts. to me they was a waste of money.if you want to go cheap get 4 300-500 watt halogen and run a generator.are do like i did and went with 4-6 250-400 watt hps's. you probably can get by with 2 400 HPS'S and be done with it
