Greetings,
I just about got my new AR240 tweaked the way I like it. Next on my list is to install underwater LED(s). It was super easy to install on my 2010 SX240, right in the center above the drain plug. But the new hull design is not as clear cut for me. Anyone have underwater LEDs installed on a 24' Yamaha with the articulating keel?

I bought two of the Dagon v2 from boatpluglights.com and have yet to install. I would like to put them, one on port and one on starboard side of the transom, but I'm concerned with space. I haven't yet removed the access panel under the swim deck seats as that will require unsealing them. I was hoping someone did this already so I could piggyback their install. A lot of results, but I haven't seen any this way on a 2017 242 s.

I have the service manual and it looks like the exhaust pipes could be in the way. If I can't install the way I want, at least I know I can put a single light above the articulating keel like Chris did!

Im really late to the party here but did you end up installing the lights? I have a 2018 212 Limited S and would like to put two on each side. I had these done on my older Malibu but Im really nervous drilling a hole in my boat!

When you installed the light above the articulating keel, where do the wires feed up to and how did you fish them through?

Thanks!

How did you pull the wires through? And from where?

You can get to them easily through the clean out panel. I was able to do it through the center cover but you can take the panel out for more room.

You can follow wiring already there between panels on the side of the engine cover to pull it forward. Sorry, I wish I had pics of that.

Mine are in the same location, easy to grab through the cleanout hatch.
