IR Camera Over Water?

Has anyone tried to install a standard 850nm/950nm IR camera for marine use on a boat to view the water in close proximaty around it? What kind of results did you get with the view at night time?

I know all about the FLIR systems, but wanted to see if anyone has tried it with a much less expensive option.
