Any Ideas?
The first 770 with red LED floor lighting - the lights are impossible to view directly from outside the boat, so the worst you will get is the glow - that was inside the workshop at night - we may go for blue next time as it is more popular and much more "bling"!

Nearest I've come to that was a Raymarine Radar with a predominantly blue background, but that really knackered night vision ... Have you tried the blue deck lighting already? if so, is night vision OK with it? Would be interested to hear from any who have

We haven't tried it, but on that size of boat I wouldn't see the need for deck lighting under way anyway, but just for use going slowly in harbours and getting on and off the boat, so ruining night vision wouldn't be an issue.

Although red light is the best colour for not interfering with your night vision no light is better!

re deck lights

if anybodys intrested they have sets of 10 LED decking lights in Aldi this week for 29.99 and they come with a controler to change the colour and you can sync them to music !!

oh and they are 240v but come with a 12dv transformer which is rated to 150ma so low current chuck that in the bin conect up and we have lights to suit your mood !
