well at least you did not ask her to pull your finger!

sounds like a good worthwhile effort. How was the light? I know a lot of times light from an LED is quite directional and that is great for task lighting, but without some sort of diffuser they don't give much spill so do you get much light on the aft deck? I am sure it makes it much more comfortable going up the swim ladder. Now all you need is one of the remote light switches.
