How do you connect 40 leds in a row. I need to run them on a small boat. Just looking for the best way thank you.

Get a string of LED outdoor Christmas lights. Don't know if they are marine grade though.

look up "LED calculator" and see what you have/need for the power supply. Then you can figure out how many to hook up in series in groups and then the groups in parallel and figure out the resistor value to throw in. And did you want to make them blink or cascade with a pattern? Good luck.
