    Richie, any of the brass lights from VOLT would be ideal for docks and piers (especially the Deck Light or others using the Surface Mount canopy).

    Ritchie, I have been hesitant to install a pier system in our area. When noreasters and hurricanes come through, piers are usually submerged. Fixtures and connections are often submerged under the salt water. I have talked to numerous manufacturers and none have been able to confidently recommend a line. Give me a pm if you want to discuss more in depth.

    Here is one from VOLT. Their brass bully with the scooped hood. I just stuck this in the ground next to my sidewalk. I was just playing around and testing it to see how much light it kicked out for deck and dock projects down the road as an option- puts out more than I was expecting. Not sure if it's the right profile for you though, or if you are looking for something that is a surface mount instead of having to drill out a hole in the dock.

    Finding a waterproof fixture for direct immersion in salt water will be tough, unless finding a fully, potted and sealed, integrated LED, which, in that configuration is going to be tough to find.

    Good Luck

    I searched the inner-web over two hours last night and didn't come up with anything , even searched Boat Dock Lighting and Nautical Lighting.

    Thanks for the demo.

    Is this a salt water dock?

    If so you're going to want to go with a spec grade product. Your client knows how deadly salt is so I'm sure they are prepared to lay out the bucks.

    Yes, there is the Hunza version of the INTEGRAliter and one other. The other is IP68 but is powder coated aluminum. Not sure if it will stand up to the salt environment. Good thing is that it is relatively inexpensive and you don't need to core a big hole into the dock / deck.

    I am trying to convince Michael Joye at Auroralight to produce a flush mount version of their compass fixture. Keep bugging him....

    I have the last 7 new INTEGRAliters here at my shop... but their price keeps increasing with scarcity. :)
