Red LED night lights in saloon and shower

Post by Einar Gloersen »

The spot lights gives very good light in the saloon and shower when your in the harbour at night, but is not so convenient when sailing in the dark.

Exchanged the two LED spots on the starboard side in the shower with similar red ones. You find them at

The lamps inside the shelves in the saloon was exchanged with self made LED lamps based on very thin (2mm) LED strips with 12 red LEDs (totaly 1W) and a teak list (200x12x5mm) with drilled holes for the LEDs. Costs for one lamp is approximately $10 and takes about 30 minutes to make with the correct tools. Addeded also a similar one above the chart board. Worked out very nice. Much better for my night vision.
If anybody is interested in more details just let me know.
