That hull looks similar to the one on the government boat in the classifieds, so maybe an airgator :scratch:

And you could probably just modify your existing rake to accommodate the lights.

Why not just keep the same rake and bolt a light bar to the top of the rake with a backing plate underneath?

or put some lights high on the cage so you can see above the grass

this is an older picture- the rake is trashed now, and already have the cage lights. I need something contained in a better quality rake.
no name or serial numbers on the hull anywhere...

I think any local builder would make you a rake to fit.
