I might buy one for the cruising times...

My wife when are at crusing and at anchor "decorates" my boom with candles and candle lamps to give some "charm" at night... I hate that!!!!!

My boat looks like a Lolipop store or something waiting for the smurfs or the Leperchauns to arrive...besides I keep banging my head on them, and burn my fingers because these things stop with the wind, and she keeps asking me to light the candles, that keep blowing out agrghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Try these out...

They look cheesy as hell by themselves, but if you put them in a candle holder with frosted sides, you can't tell they're not candles. We use them in our house on a wall mounted candle holder and nobody can tell they're battery operated. Also, really easy to turn on and off...just press down...they have a push switch on the bottom.

If you were electrically gifted, you could probably string a bunch together and run them off the DC system with a common switch.
