Are you? Have you checked the government and consumer recall lists? Here is a sample of well known brands with LED problems ...

Some LED light bulbs catching fire | HLNtv.com
LED Light Bulbs Recalled by Lighting Science Group Due to Fire Hazard | CPSC.gov
LED Candelabra Lights Recalled by Infinity Green Products Due to Fire Hazard (Recall Alert) | CPSC.gov
Manufacturer recalls 554,000 LED bulbs from four major brands

Was the Chinese LED manufacturer even registered and their product vetted for household use? No ... not traceable, a gray market product? Too bad!

To each his own ...
I am not taking the chances, especially with a gasoline powered boat, no sir!
