    Most boats have a pretty accessible dash area .

    1.  Find a spot that is handy and has nothing behind it

    2.  Drill an appropriate sized hole there

    3.  Run a wire to the 'hot' or 'run' side of the ignition switch (not the        'start') from the center of the lighter.  This should include a fuse.

    4.  Run a 2nd wire from the outside of the lighter to a ground.  All           your lights will be grounded, or you can run it back to the battery.

    5. Plug in and turn on
