When it's foggy and I'm the lone boat at anchor, I leave them on all the time with minimal effect on the batteries. They give me added peace of mind that others will see me in the fog.
What'cha got facing forward, Al?



I sometimes leave the rope lights on in the pilothouse (circling its upper interior, visible in the above photo) if needing more than an anchor light in an anchorage.

I have a hand-held, custom-made high power, narrow beam, super strong, rechargeable LED Mag-lite. It has a special glass convex lens, high power LED element and specialized reflector to deliver a focused beam with minimum near-field scatter. The light beam casts a highly-defined square pattern as very impressive distances. The battery compartment is filled with a rechargeable NiMH battery pack.

This torch was custom made for me by an angler friend who is an expert in lighting and solar charging for CalTrans. I've seen no other flashlight that can hold a candle to it. (pun intended)

Here's some pics of the lights on the dink. It's RGB 5050 LED strip, with a 2.4 ghz controller. The whole boat was $80 bucks to do, not bad. Also there are a pair of Lumitec dual color spreaders, that have a dimming feature built in.

LOL, that's funny that you mention that we got an amp, stereo, and some JL 8" speakers for pretty cheap. It should be more then enough for country music.

G4 bi-pin bulbs

As a test I changed out one of my salon lights with a bright white LED last spring. It replaced a 20 watt G4 halogen bulb. The new LED was 155 lumens. I didnt like it the white light was harsh and half the intensity. Today I replaced all four with a 120 LED warm white G4 bulb. You cant tell the difference between it and the 20 watt halogen. The pictures show the difference in the two LED lights.

Nice job, we went with cool white, because there was only a certain bulb that would fit out overhead lighting, and the bulbs were only available in cool. We don't seem to mind it.

Oliver. How are you enjoying the strip lighting. I just ordered mine and some other bulbs. I was reading some reviews about the strips and it seems there are lots of complaints about the 3M tape not sticking. What was the surface you attached your too?

Yeah the sticky stuff sucks! They are tie rapped to the old tube lighting that was there. Also did you go solid white and where are you putting them?

Good to hear. I will be tie wrapping mine as well. I ended up going with the warm white. I love the multi coloured look but doubt I would use that feature much. Like you, I will mount them behind the valance.

Thanks
