I have a boat already setup I have 6-500 watt halogen lights on the boat and I am pleased with the way everything works. I am running all these lights off of a 5000 watt generator. I have a buddy that is setting up a boat and we were looking at what is the best kind of lights to put on the boat? He has bought a 3500 watt generator. Whether it is a halogen, high pressure sodium bulb, or what? We primary shoot in low visibility water.
