Wal-mart here too. They're inexpensive and come in several different lengths. I bought the longest one so it would show above my scoop.
cool so ya joey was sayin that he just used like a bracket and mounted it on his stringer cause i saw urs was mounted on the rear of ur hull so i gotta find out how he did that. I was thinking of mounting it on the rails cause i have a lot of room left.

Mine was already mounted on the hull. I bought it that way so just had to wire it in when I made the new harness.

I could see where you wouldn't want to cut a hole in that nice hull of yours. Just use the gasket that comes in the kit for a template. You can draw it out on a piece of 2" X 2" aluminum angle, cut out the holes accordingly and mount that to your stringer.

I do both as well as make a lot of my own parts. If I need it right away and can find it locally, or make it myself, that's the route I'm gonna take. If not...........they get my business.

There's a number of different ways to connect it, but the easiest will be the way Joey did his.

One wire to 12 Volts (battery or other souce of constant voltage regardless of key postition). The other wire goes to the engine block, motor mount/rail or negative battery terminal (ground). It is not polarity sensitive (doesn't matter which wire you use for ground or power).

When you plug the pole into the fixture it'll complete the circuit and be on as long as it's plugged in.

I put mine on a switch with the bow lights.

I'll tell you from experience make sure that the light is visible 360 degrees,(not blocked by ones head or someone standing)Other words make sure it is high enough to not be blocked
