LED Bulbs

Due to hirers ever increasing demands for electrical equipment on the narrowboats I need to reduce the load on the alternators / batteries, one of the biggest draws is lighting so I am about to replace all the filament bulbs with led replacements. Even at trade prices led bulbs are silly money so I am looking at importing them from the manufacturer, but you have to buy a minimum quantity of any 1 type, so the question is: How many people would be interested in buying led bulbs to replace there standard filament nav and mooring light bulbs? and if so what style contacts and wattage. If sufficient people are interested I will get a price from the manufacturer.
Richard

Could be interested in getting some festoon ones, would have to do a pricing though as I haven't got any lights yet, but would be interested.
