I removed the last of all the incandescent bulbs from my boat Saturday.



So now 100% LED inside and out.

That is a very beautiful thing. Dedicated red LEDs and green LEDs are perfect for navigation lights. In my case I have a single bulb with a filtered lens. In that case a white LED (color temperature 5600K blue-white) does not display the same color spread as a white incandescent bulb (color temp 2800 yellow-white), so the green side appears bluish and does not provide 1nm visibility. I therefore did not replace the bow red green with a LED. Also, Ive kept my steaming light as a cheapie incandescent because I only turn it on while its dark and the engine is running, charging the battery.
Everything else is LED.

Dr LED makes a LED with green and red LED's. Here was my slightly humorous thread about it from 2011:

Perfect fit for the holes. It's an all-in-one fixture. Instead of the regular screws that came with it, I used the old nuts and through-bolts that also hold the so-called 'covers' inside the anchor locker. I'm thinking of making new, lower profile covers, which will allow more room and make easier neatly packing 300' of 1/2" rode, 50' of chain plus anchor in the locker.
