LED glow tubing question? Answered
I am thinking of putting some glow tubing on the inside of my 14 foot jon boat, mainly for night fishing. It would also make it look really cool at night.
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
