LED glow tubing question?
The concept is simple, some of you may know - clear tubing from the hardware store, filled with water, with an LED in either end. This should light it up even if it is curved, right?
I want to put long tubes running the length of the boat, on the inside groove of the side runners. That would mean 13+ feet of slightly curved glow tubing. I may have to end up splitting the glow sticks into smaller sections, but would like to see if I can do long single tubes.
I'm concerned that the light will fade out in the middle considerably. I'm OK with it fading a little, but I don't want it to be noticeably bad.
Will a narrower light beam help solve the problem? (found some 12 degree online)
I will go for the narrowest beam and highest candlepower possible. Am I on the right track? Got any advice? Thanks a bunch
