Like all completed upgrades, your want to quickly get out there to test out your new product. However, most of us typically have to wait weeks or months, but not Erik. That evening Erik decided to take his NauticStar 244 out on the water to test it out but unbeknownst to him, there was a challenge awaiting that would be putting his new Aurora Marine light bar to the test.
While out on the water he come upon a stranded boat and had to tow the boat for an hour an a half which put him well into the night. With no moonlight, he only had his new Aurora Marine light bar to rely on.
Erik was very pleased with the lights performance as he found the Aurora light to be extremely beneficial when he hit a section of river with no housing or other methods of light. The Aurora boat light bar was able to assist him in locating crucial reference points to aid him in safely towing the disabled boat back to the dock.
