Anchoring LED bow, stern and midship lights purchased

We purchased two of these 4" Blue LED lights, one for the bow under the anchor roller
and one on the stern inside the SS vent for the blower.


November 2017 - Tied up in Marina Mazatlán, Mexico
We are currently house sitting in University Heights, San Diego CA

 
We purchased one of these from Amazon and will place it on the solar panel which is on top of the dodger, facing forward. It will give us light to work on deck at night on a passage and we can use it for a light while at anchor with the other two. We can use one of the switches below to dim it in case it is too bright and shiing in a hatch etc.
These 20" strips were also half price!
"POWER: 12VDC / 7-Watts
BRIGHTNESS: 300 Lumens of LED Power per 20" Strip
WATERPROOF: IP68 Fully Waterproof, but not submersible.
CABLE: Comes with 18" of marine grade tinned cable on both ends. Connect multiple 20" strips together (up to 15 strips).
LED COLOR: BLUE
Asunflower LED Dimmer Controller 12V Switch ON/OFF LED Strip Light Dimmer Controller Multi Mode
Auto memorizing function, saving your last setting
These switches we will use to turn off the lights when we are under way or at a marina (not anchored). They also can dim the light and change the mode to blinking at different speeds.
 These PhotoCell switches will do the work of turning our anchoring LED deck lights on\off when the sun goes down and comes up. We cut the plugs off the ends and wire them up to 12v.
"Ultra-sensitive light sensor automatically switches;
The maximum output power is 60W;
Waterproof rating is IP68, suitable for outdoor;

And yet more parts checked off the US buy list for the next cruising season on s\v Elegant'sea!
