I have an '04 21i and am contemplating either a light bar or bow lights for night docking and trailer loading. I have heard that the light that a light bar throws gets washed out and it not very good for loading and docking. I'm also concerned that the Tige' factory bow lights might not be that effective either. Any suggestions?

The Tige bow lights are worthless and provide almost no useable illumination when docking at night. You are better off with a hand held spotlight that you can direct where you want. I cannot speak about the tower lights as I do not have them.

We have the Shark Eye looking lights that came as an option with our 22v, as we'll as 6 Titan lights (4 back, 2 foward). The first reason we got the tower lights was so that we could ride and surf at night, and they work great for that, illuminated the wake and the flats. But we also found that they are great for docking as well. They never move, but we keep ours loose so we can adjust them to where we want. The lights also have a little bar inside the light that keeps the light from reflecting off of the bow into the driver's eyes, and it's super helpful.

Here is the link to the lights online:

And then a variety of tower lights:
