Bass Pro Shops Portable Navigation Stern Lights
Not for me
I was not impressed with this light as it flickered on and off I tried everything to stop this to no avail
I would not recommend this light
I now have installed regular lights on my Gheenoe and am way happier

First off, when I purchased these there were no holes to attach it to the clamp. I had to use an awl to hammer in holes to screw them in. I don't know if they are all like that or I just got unlucky.
They provide very little light in the boat, as they point up and to the side...Not down at all. So, they are really only good for compliance with regulations where a stern light is required.
I wanted this for use on my row boat so I could see what I was doing at night without using my free hand to hold a light. They are pretty much useless for that purpose.
As far as mounting, I had no trouble. It is a bit top heavy with the 2 x D batteries on top and a small clamp, but if you screw the clamp tight enough it works well.

Good for hunting...
First I want to say that I would not recommend this if you like to go night fishing or whatever due to its constant use. On the other hand, if your planning on using these lights just for running up to the duck blind then its perfect. I have a boat that is used for duck hunting and nothing else and installing wires and all kinds of other stuff is too much for just a quick run up to the blind. The best part is easy assembly, runs on D batteries, and makes you legal which is the purpose anyway. Perfect for duck hunters...not so good for all night users.

I bought this for my boat because i didn't want buy a marine battery just for the light. The first time i used it the rattling of the motor on my boat caused the light to flicker and shut off. I unscrewed the cap and tightened the light bulb and it has worked PERFECT since. THAT IS ALL YOU HAVE TO DO. I guess when you buy it the light bulb doesn't come very tightened. This is a great idea and product.
