Unfortunately, the availability of furniture grade, Schedule 40 PVC has been challenging the past year because of resin shortages used to make the PVC. The continued unavailability, plus cost increases which are now 60% higher than a year ago, has forced us to discontinue making all dock lights and many flounder lights that use PVC pipe and fittings. While prices have also increased on standard “White” Schedule 40 PVC, it is still available at most locations which means you can still build your own custom made light rigs using your own PVC and our AlumiGlo FlounderPro 2850 (30W COBs) and AlumiGlo Accessories. You can build a multi-light rig like shown above, a duplicate of our AlumiGlo FlounderPro 8550 Light Kit like shown below, or a handheld light like our AlumiGlo FlounderPro 2000 Light Kit as shown below.
Which AlumiGlo lights should I use?
Hands down, our AlumiGlo FlounderPro 2850 (30W COB) is our most popular light for gigging and bully-netting. These small compact lights produce more overall lumens for the money and can be easily mounted to fit any size or type of boat. The lights utilize a water tight anodized aluminum housing which into a 1.25” Schedule 40 female fitting. Their small size allows them to be mounted and aimed in any direction using different PVC fittings. Having the ability to simply aim the small light at different angles allows you to illuminate the water from the left front corner to the right front corner of the boat while only using a few lights. Since the light uses a single 30W COB LED, you don’t have to worry about solder joints vibrating loose and multiple LEDs going out over time. These lights are for below water use only!
If using your own power-cord, we recommend using 16-gauge wire when coupling (3) lights together. Due to amperage overload, we do not recommend using more than (3) lights with one power-cord.
