Being the anorak that I am, I want to put some deck lights into the rib and have ordered these I found these on the internet;
LED 8" Strip Light - Waterproof - Red Lens - Red LEDs - 12V - HMS Marine Supplies Limited
I remember old black and white films of 'Dive, Dive Dive' or whatever or Noel Coward when the bridge was all dulled down to red lighting for 'night vision' when engaging the enemy (how you could tell with black and white, God only knows!). So I am going to try and install one 8" red strip on console (front vision) and one white 8" strip on back seat low down.
I googled 'ideal night vision light colour' and found this to be quite interesting EQUIPPED TO SURVIVE (tm) - Green or Red for Better Night Vision?
and they now reckon 'Green light'.
Anyway lots of fun, I just wanted to jazz up the boat for night time and have a bit of fun
Being LED's and wired with a switch I'm hoping that it wont be too much a drain on the battery. Visions of me not being able to start the engine but lit up like a Christmas tree floating around the Solent...............
