Courtesy Light Installation?

I would like to install a couple of courtesy lights on the scoops of our catamaran.

It would be nice to have them turned on at dusk and off at daylight by a solar sensor or photovoltaic switch.

Does anyone know of a marine quality switch for this application?

Thanks

Re: Courtesy Light Installation?

Because it's just too much work to flip a switch? Or because the anchorage just needs more lights on all night? Sorry, can't help you with the switch thing, you might check with a place that specializes in those cool underwater lights.
