I would look for floodlights made for ag tractors. They need to put out lotsa light and be tough.

On a related tangent, I got some of those 23W energy-saver floodlights (R40, I think) to replace some 100W floodlights I have around the property. Those things put out a LOT of light, seem to light up at least 2x more area than the 100W floodlights that they replaced. They are basically a CFL bulb placed inside of a floodlight housing that is highly reflective. They are also UL-rated to operate in moist environments. Maybe they would work with a power inverter on your boat (or maybe you already have AC output with your generator). They fit right into a landscape lighting socket, which shouldn't be too hard to rig up on the boat. I think the bulbs were around $7 each.

I have the lights in stock, will have to check the price at the shop. I have gigs, at the welding shop, and have to pick them up today, When checking on a boat getting the alum, work done to rig out, Alum handle, with S.S. allthread points, on them.
