Just ordered a pair of OceanLED A6s for our '05 Gulfstream. Now the question is, where to put them? The bracket makes it a little tricky. Anyone have them on a gulfstream or a bracketed model? Anyone else have any ideas on the best spots? Thanks in advance.

Any comments on the A6s in general would be appreciated as well....

Anyone who's wondering....we put them just above the trim tabs, under the scuppers - couldn't be happier. Anyone looking for the right underwater light, look no further than OceanLED (no affiliation). Absolutely worth the extra money in my opinion. Two A6s are brighter than I imagined - light reaches much further than the 11.5' they claim - more like 20'.

if for fishing, on the boat is best to bring the fish in. if for looks, i'd go with the bracket. the concern I would have if the boat, I would want 100% glass. if the bracket, I'd find a method to add without drilling.

I did this. Blue for wine and cheese cruising. No holes. Mounts in place of garboard drain.
